Senior year of college, our suite-mate Sam made THE most killer peanut butter blossom cookies (Sam, give a shout out if you’re reading this). She was kind enough to share her recipe with us, and from time to time I love to pull out this classic cookie favorite. Please enjoy!
1 3/4 c. flour
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. packed brown sugar
1/2 t. salt
1 t. baking soda
1/2 c. margarine (I used butter and they turned out just fine)
1/2 c. peanut butter
2 T. milk
1 t. vanilla
Hershey’s kisses* (I recommend dark chocolate)
*The recipe calls for 48, but when I made them I ended up with about 28 cookies. I suppose it depends on how big you make them!
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix all ingredients together (except hershey’s kisses) until your dough is combined and smooth. Scoop the dough into rounded spoonfuls and roll the ball in some regular sugar. Place the sugar-coated dough balls on your cookie sheets a few inches apart from each other. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Right when they come out of the oven, push one hershey’s kiss into the middle of each cookie. Move to cooling rack and let cool completely.
