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.
