Mini Peanut Butter Blossoms

Little bites!

Here is an all time favorite cookie recipe….Peanut Butter Blossoms. I saw the little mini kisses on sale in the baking aisle, and couldn’t resist making some mini blossoms! This is a recipe for cookies made with butter, NOT shortening. I try to avoid shortening…it really grosses me out. Hope y’all had a wonderful Thanksgiving…it’s time for Christmas baking to begin!

Peanut Butter Blossoms
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c brown sugar
1/2 c butter
1/2 c peanut butter
1 egg
1 t vanilla extract
1/4 t salt
1 3/4 c flour
1 t baking soda
1/4 c sugar (for rolling)
48 kisses (or about half a bag of miniature kisses)
Preheat oven to 375.
Combine sugars, butter and peanut butter in a large bowl and mix until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla. Mix until well combined. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet. Mix until well combined.
Shape dough into 1-inch balls (or about half that size for the mini’s!). Roll the balls in sugar and place onto cookie sheets.
Bake 8-10 minutes (7-8 for mini’s) until the edges are cracked and they are lightly golden brown. Press the kiss in the middle, and cool completely on racks.
