Peanut Butter Blossoms

I have had this recipe for the longest time that I don't even remember where it originated from. I have been making these cookies since I was a kid. To me it is the best peanut butter cookie and oh boy have I tried many. I think what I like about this cookie is that it reminds me of the peanut butter in the middle of a Reese's cup. I make them every Christmas because to me they are THE holiday cookie. I hope you try them and think they are just as delish as I do. If you have a better recipe please share.


1 1/4  c. flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 c. shortening
1/2 c. Creamy Peanut butter
1/2 c. granulated sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 egg
11 ounce bag of Hershey kisses


In a medium bowl mix together four, baking soda, salt and set aside. With a mixer cream together shortening and peanut butter until well blended. Then add both sugars. Add egg and mix until combined. Slowly add dry ingredients until all incorporated. Chill in refrigerator for 1 hour.

Roll into small 1 inch balls and then coat with sugar. Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes.  Immediately after you remove from the oven place a Hershey kiss on each cookie and then let cool.


  1. This is the BEST peanut butter blossom recipe...I have tried a few and this is my absolute favorite! They are perfectly crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. I always make a double batch because they do not last long at my house, my family LOVES them! Thanks Andrea!!

  2. I've made these several times and they are so easy and yummy.
