Peanut Butter Blossoms

  • Author: Glenda Embree
  • Prep Time: 10 min
  • Cook Time: 10 min
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 3 dozen 1x


  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

For decorating cookies:

  • 1/2 cup sugar (for rolling)
  • 36 chocolate kisses unwrapped


  1. In the bowl of a *stand mixer (or large mixing bowl if making by hand), cream the butter, peanut butter and sugars.
  2. Beat in the egg and vanilla.
  3. Add flour, baking soda and salt and mix until all ingredients are thoroughly combined.
  4. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, to make the dough easier to handle.
  5. Add the sugar to a small bowl.
  6. Drop 1 1/2 inch diameter cookie dough balls into the sugar, with a *cookie scoop.  Roll the balls until they are completely coated.
  7. Place the cookies on a greased cookie sheet and bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes.  Cookies should be lightly golden brown tops and they will have cracks.  Remove them as early as you see those cracks appear if you like softer, chewier cookies.
  8. Remove from the oven and immediately push 1 Hershey’s kiss into the center of each individual cookie.  It’s important to do this while the cookies are still hot.
  9. Place cookies on a cooling rack to cool.
  10. Store in an airtight container.
