These are peanut blossoms for my brother-in-law’s birthday. The recipe is from Hersheys. This recipe makes a ton of cookies! I used shortening which makes for very puffy cookies that don’t spread at all. If you want to use softened butter, feel free. Although the cookies will probably spread out more.
1 cup of shortening. 1 cup brown sugar. 1 1/2 cups peanut butter. 1 cup sugar. 2 eggs. 1 tsp vanilla. 3 1/2 cups flour. 2 tsp baking soda. 1/4 tsp salt. 2 tbs milk
Cream shortening and peanut butter. Add sugar and brown sugar. Blend well. Add eggs and vanills. Stir in dry ingredients. Roll 3 tbs dough into balls. Chill. Bake at 350 degrees for 7 to 9 minutes. Immediately press hershey kiss in top. Let cool for a few minutes on cookie sheet. Store in covered c0ntainwe.
