Peanut Blossoms

I’m pretty sure everyone has a peanut blossom recipe.  They are one of those fan favorites that shows up on just about every plate of cookies at the holidays.  Some folks insist on the standard Hershey kiss, while others prefer the generic, not smooth chocolate kiss.  We’ve always been a smooth kiss family.  I’ve never known which recipe my mom used, but this one tasted good this year on her tray of goodies, so I insisted on copying down the recipe.  Here we are:

Peanut Blossoms

Cream together:

1/3 c peanut butter

½ c margarine

½ c white sugar

½ c brown sugar


1 egg

Mix well and add:

1 tsp soda

1 ¾ c flour

2 Tbsp milk

Chill at least 2 hours.  Shape into balls, roll in sugar.

Bake on a greased sheet at 350-375 degrees for 8 minutes

Remove from oven and top immediately with a chocolate kiss.
