Indulge in the classic and irresistible combination of peanut butter and chocolate with these Peanut Butter Blossoms. These soft and chewy peanut butter cookies are topped with a Hershey’s Kiss, creating a delightful treat that’s perfect for any occasion.
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup granulated sugar (for rolling)
48 Hershey’s Kisses, unwrapped
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter, creamy peanut butter, granulated sugar, and light brown sugar until light and fluffy.
Add the egg and mix until well combined.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking soda, and salt.
Gradually add the dry ingredients to the peanut butter mixture, mixing until the cookie dough comes together.
Shape the dough into 1-inch balls. Roll each ball in granulated sugar to coat it.
Place the sugar-coated dough balls on the prepared baking sheet, leaving some space between each.
Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until the cookies are lightly golden.
As soon as you remove the cookies from the oven, press a Hershey’s Kiss into the center of each cookie while they are still warm.
Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
These Peanut Butter Blossoms are a delightful treat for peanut butter and chocolate lovers. Enjoy them with a glass of cold milk for the perfect pairing!
