Peanut Blossoms

Category Peanut Butter

I already have my cooking and baking menu ready for Christmas but think I'll make these for a New Years treat. I think they'll be perfect for Valentines Day, too :-)


  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar, plus 1/4 cup for decoration
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tbsp. milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1-3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 (9 oz.) bag milk chocolate candy kisses, unwrapped


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease cookie sheets.

In a large bowl, cream together the shortening, peanut butter, brown sugar, and 1/2 cup white sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and stir in the milk and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt in another bowl and stir in to the peanut butter mixture until well blended.


Shape tablespoonfuls of dough into balls, and roll in remaining white sugar. Place cookies 2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 10 to12 minutes.

Remove from oven and immediately press a chocolate kiss into each cookie. Cool completely; the kiss will harden as it cools.
