My family loves peanut butter cookies.
When our daughter, Olivia, was little she loved to help me make this recipe. She loved to roll the dough into balls and then roll the balls into sugar. She was always a big help and every year for Christmas or special occasions when I make this recipe she still loves to help me. This recipe for peanut butter blossom cookies can be made with three different types of chocolate candies.
Heart Shaped Candies
I love to make them with Heart-Shaped Candies for Valentine's Day. These are always fun!
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup light brown sugar
2 Tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Your choice of candy (Kiss shaped, heart shaped or mini peanut butter cups)
Cream butter and peanut butter together.
Add the 1/3 cup sugar and brown sugar.
Mix together the egg, milk and vanilla
and combine with the sugar and peanut butter mixture.
Combine the dry ingredients and add those as well to the mixing bowl.
Once everything is combined, shape your dough into balls
and then roll the balls in the extra additional sugar.
Place on cookie sheets and bake at 375 for 8 to 10 minutes.
When you remove them from the oven, place an unwrapped
chocolate kiss, mini peanut butter cup or heart-shaped candy into the center of each cookie.
Why not make some for your family for Valentine's Day next week?
