This is a all time family favorite any time of the year. However, on X-mas its a must have for your cookie tray. The only thing different that my family and I prefer is we use mini muffin pans lined with the small muffin tin papers. Form the dough into small balls and bake them at the same temp. for about 8 mins. While they are baking we unrap the candies, and this is were we again do it a little different. Instead of using chocolate kiss's, we use reeses peanutbutter cups, the minitures. We then place them right into the hot baked cookies. Pushing them down so that the candy is flat with the cookie and hold it there for about 10 secs. so that it has time to melt some chocolate off the candy, thus making it the "glue" to hold the candy in. I have to make 4 batches, each batch being a double. Terrific cookie and looks festive in X-mas muffin liners and so much easier to travel that way as well...E N J O Y !!!!
These were delicious except for one thing... I don't think there was enough peanut butter in them. Everyone that tasted them agreed, and one even asked if they really were peanut butter cookies. I'd use this recipe again but I am afraid if I add more peanut butter on my own, I'll mess it all up. So sorry because I love these. I found a recipe that is almost identical but with more peanut butter.
I'd never made peanut butter blossoms before, but these truned out excellent. I replaced the shortening with butter, and all two dozen disappeared in less than a day. And they look pretty, too. Great recipe!
urned out great! We used 1/2 cup butter instead of shortening. In addition to milk chocolate kisses, we used dark chocolate kisses, peanut butter cups, and Rolo's! We froze the candy prior to baking so that the candy wouldn't melt when it was put on the cookie.
I doubled the recipe. I made half the traditional way, with the chocolate kisses. For the other half, I put the ball of dough in a mini-muffin tray, pressed a peanut cup on top, and then baked. These were perfect! This is the only peanut butter blossom recipe I will use from now on! They disappeared in a flash!
Excellent cookie!!! I added 1/4 cup more peanut butter than what the recipie called for.......I used the butter crisco sticks and this cookie was perfect....
This is a great recipe. A traditional cookie I love every Christmas. I modified it slightly and came out with a yummy cookie. I add 3/4 cup peanut butter instead of just 1/2 cup. Tastes great.
Easy to make and just the right amount of peanut butter flavor. The dough is really easy to work with too. I followed the recipe exactly. One tip: unwrap your kisses while the cookies are baking so that you can put them on before the cookies cool too much. Great recipe!
