How to Make Peanut Butter Blossoms
There aren’t a ton of steps for this cookie recipe.
Start by unwrapping all the chocolate kisses and set them aside. You may want to keep them in the refrigerator if you live in a hot or humid climate.
Next, grab a mixing bowl and place all of the dry and wet ingredients and mix until combined. Be sure to not overmix. Set the cookie mixture in the refrigerator for a few minutes so it can be cold enough to roll into a ball.
Once the dough is chilled (not too long!) roll one-inch balls and set them on a cookie sheet. Next, roll each ball into the granulated sugar and put back on the cookie sheet. This will give a nice sugary coating on the cookies.
Next, place the cookies in the oven and cook for 10-12 minutes. Follow the package instructions and bake until golden brown.
Remove from the oven and place a Hershey’s kiss on top, gently pressing into the top of each cookie.
