Two types of peanut butter cookies

Peanut Butter Blossoms

My husband and I made these cookies for a Christmas party we had at our apartment. Who doesn't love peanut butter and chocolate?


48 Hershey's kisses, unwrapped

1/2 cup shortening or butter (I always use butter)
3/4 cup peanut butter (creamy)
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup packed brown sugar1 egg
2 T milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-1 1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
sugar for dusting

1.) Heat the oven to 375 degrees.
2.) Beat butter and peanut butter until well blended. Add 1/3 cup of sugar and brown sugar,
and beat until fluffy. Add egg, milk, and vanilla; beat well. Stir together the flour, baking soda and salt, and gradually beat this mixture into the peanut butter mixture.

3.) Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in sugar and place on ungreased cookie sheets.
4.) Bake for 8-10 minutes until browned lightly. Immediately press a chocolate kiss into the center of each cookie. Remove cookies to a rack to cool.

*This makes 4 dozen cookies.

Magical Peanut Butter Cookies

So there is a theme going here... peanut butter! These cookies are super, super easy to make and require very few ingredients. This recipe is from Paula Deen. I would double or triple the recipe, as these will go quick!

*I used real sugar, not Splenda.
