Peanut Butter Blossoms...

Friday, January 27, 2012

For this week's Something Yummy for My Colonel's Tummy
I'm sharing a cookie that I've been making for years; 
since Olivia was a baby and as she grew she has always helped
bake these cookies.  

Her job has always been rolling the dough into the balls and then rolling them in the sugar.
And yes, she even helped this year when she was home for Christmas break from college.

Peanut Butter Blossoms
(Made THREE different ways)

Made with Heart-Shaped Candies...

Candy Kisses...

Mini Peanut Butter Cups...


1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1 egg
2 Tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Additional sugar
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...


Enjoy your day!

  1. I will have you know that Peanut Butter Blossoms are one of my favorite cookies the whole world over! I have to fight with myself to keep from eating them ALL! As for what's on our dinner menu tonight? We'll probably go out for Mexican food...and I'm looking so forward to it!

  2. Glad you are feeling better. My family loves these cookies, my only problem is keeping the kisses until I can make them.

  3. Your poor baby - I am so far behind on reading I didn't know you were sick. You caught it from the colonel. GET WELL QUICK!


  4. Happy to hear you are feeling better... It's no fun to be sick.

    Peanut Butter Blossoms used to be one of my favorite cookies. I can still remember how good they tasted.

  5. An all time favorite! They look so tempting :)

  6. I hope you continue to listen to your body and take care of yourself.

    We love peanut blossoms here!

  7. Looks the ones with the hearts will have to try them for Valentines day.
    So thankful that you are feeling better...but you still need to rest!
    On the menu tonight at our house is cheese quesadillas and vegie corn chowder!

  8. They look great with kisses or cups and so cute with the hearts!

  9. I love those cookies and I also have trouble keeping the kisses till the cookies are ready.
    I am glad that you are feeling much better,but don't over due.

  10. Versitle cookie recipes are so helpful. I'll have to try the heart ones.

  11. HI Lois,
    Oh, I love those cookies, they are the best but I never make them, but I have eaten them at others peoples houses in the past.
    I do make a gluten free peanut butter cookies that has 3 ingredients,
    peanut butter, eggs, and sugar, but
    I use less sugar than it calls for,
    this time I put some choc. chips in them, (and I used your freeze them method and have some left to bake later, probably tonight now that I have seen this post. lol) but am making them for valentines day for sure and putting the hearts in....what a great idea.......
    so cute and perfect for the Love day!! lol

    Thanks for stopping by today, and for your sweet comments as always and No, you aren't a hoarder, you just have more people in your household,
    remember it is just the 2 of us, but I do have 2 fridges, and I do keep some extra stuff in a cabinet in the garage, for those great deals when I find them, but I don't buy a lot of stuff in boxes cause it has the dreaded oils of course, so that cuts down on a lot of stuff.

    Now I just need to find a wider and
    shorter basket to put the chips in
    and the pantry should look nicer.

    Have a great weekend sweetie,
    Love and Blessings, Nellie

  12. I am so glad to hear that you are feeling better...and I really wish you hadn't reminded me of those amazing peanut butter blossom cookies!!! ;-)

  14. If I were to bake cookies my hubby would think I was up to something. BUT, I am going to try these. They look so easy.

  19. Howdy, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam comments? If so how do you stop it, any plugin or anything you can suggest? I get so much lately it’s driving me crazy so any assistance is very much appreciated.

  20. Lois, I saw these on Foodie Friends Friday, and wanted to come over and tell you how much I love them! I want them ALL THREE WAYS...great excuse to buy THREE different kinds of candy! ;)
