It is cold here on this Wednesday morning and we even had frost on the ground this morning! So I guess you are wondering what we will be baking today. The house is smelling of Peanut Blossom cookies!
You will need:
- 1 3/4 cups flour (all purpose flour)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 firmly packed brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup Crisco
- 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 48 Hershey’s chocolate kisses
Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl except candy. Mix on lowest speed until dough forms. Shape cookie dough into balls, using a rounded teaspoonful. Roll the balls in sugar, place on a ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in oven, 375 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from oven and top each cookie immediately with a Hershey kiss and press firmly so cookie cracks around the edge.
