Peanut Butter Blossoms

We are baking these today. YUMMY !!

Traditional holiday peanut butter cookies topped with a chocolate candy kiss.

1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup Butter, softened*
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup granulated sugar (to roll unbaked dough balls in)
48 milk chocolate candy kisses, unwrapped

Heat oen to 375. Combine sugar, brown sugar, butter, and peanutbutter in large bowl. Beat until light & fluffy. Add egg, vanilla, and salt. Continue beating until well mixed. Add baking soda and flour - beat well while scraping bowl often.

Shape dough into 1-inch balls. (If dough is too soft, refrigerate until more firm.). Roll balls in sugar (1/4 cup needed). Place 2-inches apart on greased cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes until VERY lightly golden brown. Remove from oven & immediately press 1 chocolate kiss candy in the center of each cookie. Remove cookies from baking sheet to cooling rack. Cool completely.

Makes 4 dozen cookies.
