This is such a fun recipe to make with kids. There's making the dough, rolling the dough into balls, rolling the balls in sugar, and then squishing in the chocolates. My daughter loved it. And the cookies taste so good. They were still soft and delicious the next day.





Peanut Blossom Cookies

Yield: 4 dozen cookies

INGREDIENTS FOR COOKIES
    1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
    3/4 cup peanut butter (smooth or crunchy, I used smooth)
    1/3 cup light brown sugar
    1/3 cup granulated white sugar
    1 large egg
    1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    2 tablespoons milk
    1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt

COATING
    1/3 cup granulated white sugar

GARNISH
    48 milk chocolate Kisses, unwrapped (I used rosebuds/rosettes)

DIRECTIONS

Line three baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.

In the bowl of your electric mixer (or with a hand mixer), cream the butter. Add the peanut butter and sugars and beat until light and fluffy (about 2 - 3 minutes). Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat to combine. Beat in the milk. In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to the peanut butter mixture and beat until incorporated. Cover and chill the batter for about an hour, or until firm enough to roll into balls.

Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C) and place rack in the center of the oven.

Roll the dough into 1 inch (2.54cm) round balls. Place the granulated white sugar in a shallow bowl and roll each ball in the sugar. Place on the prepared baking sheet, spacing about 2 inches (5 cm) apart.

Bake the cookies for about 8 - 10 minutes, or until the cookies are lightly browned. Immediately upon removing the cookies from the oven, place a chocolate Kiss in the center of each cookie, pressing down until the cookie just starts to crack. Cool completely on a wire rack.

Yum! And they do look fun for kids to make - I'm thinking they would be especially fun for the special needs kids where I work - the sensory stimulus of rolling the dough and squishing in the chocolates would be a good activity for autistic kids.

Hope it turns out well! It's one of the better kid cookie recipes I've tried with her 'cause there are so many fun things to do with it. :)

Thank you so much for posting this! I've got all the ingredients except the kisses. We've got plenty of chocolate we can choose from here though! Were they solid kisses or did they have a filling?

I didn't use Kisses either, I went with rosebuds. :D They are a solid chocolate. Even though the chocolates don't go on until they come out of the oven, they turn to goo in seconds. Fresh out of the oven, Serenity scooped out the warm chocolate and ate it like pudding first. The next day when they were cold, she'd pop the chocolate off and eat it first again. lol I don't think filled chocolates would work; they'd have to be pretty thick with a good wall of chocolate so the center wouldn't ooze.

Ah! Okay...I thought rosebuds were a different kind of kiss. LOL! Thanks for the clarification Robin. I'll let you know when I make them. :)
