Peanut Butter Blossoms

Peanut Butter Blossoms are nostalgic for me. These were always my mom’s specialty when I was growing up. My siblings and I mostly loved it when she made them because we got to eat cookies, but we were also so excited because we got help her roll the dough into balls and then stick the Hershey’s Kisses on top.

The best part about these cookies is how simple they are. You can put in the time to make the peanut butter cookie dough from scratch or you can pick up some pre-made dough from the store and turn these into 2 ingredient cookies that would be ready about 10 minutes after you get home!

Peanut Butter Blossoms

  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer (I have this one) cream the butter, peanut butter, and both sugars until creamy and smooth. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing fully after each addition.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Whisk to combine.
  3. Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and mix until just combined. This will prevent the cookies from being tough.
  4. Chill the dough for at least 30 minutes.
  5. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees (F). Line a baking sheet (this is my favorite) with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Set aside.
  6. Scoop about 1 tablespoon of cookie dough and roll it into a ball. Roll the ball in the remaining 1/4 cup of sugar and thoroughly coat.
  7. Repeat with remaining dough and space the cookies about 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet.
  8. Bake the cookies for 8-10 minutes, depending on how soft you want the cookies to be. Rotate the pan halfway through baking to ensure even baking.
  9. Remove the cookies from the oven and immediately place a Kiss in the center of each cookie. Allow the cookies to cool completely.
