Tender peanut-butter cookies made memorable with a chocolate candy kiss, Peanut Blossoms are holiday favorites for children ... of all ages!
In the Ewer household, these are holiday season favorites. It wouldn't be Christmas without them!
While they're usually seen crowned by a chocolate kiss, try a simple recipe variation by filling a depression in the center with fruit jelly for Peanut Butter and Jelly cookies!
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Cream sugars, shortening and peanut butter. Add eggs, milk and vanilla, and beat well. Stir in dry ingredients.
Form into 1" balls and roll in granulated sugar.
Bake for 8 minutes. Remove from oven, and press kiss into each cookie. Return to oven and bake 3 minutes more.
Makes 6-7 dozen.
With end of spoon, create "well" in cookies, and fill with jelly or jam for "peanut butter and jelly" cookies.
