By far, one of my favorite parts of the Christmas season is making cookies. When my grandmother was still around,  we used to get together every holiday and bake. I couldn’t have been happier…..a flour-y mess, with sticky dough-covered fingers and a belly full of  kisses. She called them “Peanut Butter Blossoms”, I call them a little piece of heaven!


1 Cup sugar                                                                                  2tsp. vanilla

1Cup packed brown sugar                                                      3 Cups Flour

1 Cup creamy peanut butter                                                 1 1/2 tsp baking soda

1 Cup butter softened                                                              1 tsp baking powder

2 eggs                                                                                               1 tsp salt

1/4 Cup milk                                                                                 2 bags of kisses

Cream butter, sugars and peanut butter. Beat in eggs, milk and vanilla. Sift together flour, soda, powder and salt. Stir dry mixture into the egg mixture. Chill 1 hour. Shape into small balls and roll in a bit of granulated sugar. Place on ungreased cookie sheet, flattening the center of each cookie slightly with your thumb. Bake in preheated oven at 375 for 10-12 mins. Immediately press a kiss onto each cookie and thoroughly cool on cookie racks.





Happy New Years everyone!
