Peanut Blossoms II

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2011
I was pretty disappointed with the way these cookies turned out. I thought with so many great reviews they would be a lot better than they actually were. I followed the recipe exactly except I used butter in place of shortening as others suggested. The batter tasted too 'floury' and the cookies came out dry and crumbly with no flavor. I added additional butter, peanut butter, and vanilla trying to salvage these cookies, but they are still way too dry. In comparing this recipe to other peanut butter cookie recipes, I found that the measurement for the flour and baking soda was too high and the peanut butter too low. So, if you scale back the flour by about a cup and cut the baking soda in half, these might turn out all right. I'm just sad I wasted the Kisses on these. :(
