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!
