Peanut Blossoms

I’m sure this is many family’s favorite recipe. No collection of recipes would be complete without this old fashioned Christmas goodie.


  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon soda
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 2 Tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • Hershey’s chocolate candy kisses

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Roll balls in additional sugar. Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake @ 375 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes until golden brown. Once removed from oven, top each hot cookie with candy kiss, pressing down so cookie cracks around edges.
