Puffy peanut butter cookies topped with melted milk chocolate

Peanut blossoms with a twist

These are a favorite of many people, especially this time of year. They are peanut blossoms with a twist. Instead of a Hershey kiss on a peanut butter cookie, I melted milk chocolate ans scooped it on top. I used Crisco, which is why the cookies stayed so puffy. (I also chilled dough overnight too help with the puffiness). If you don’t want to top with melted chocolate, sprinkle cookies with sugar before baking. Remember to preheat your oven to 375 degrees for 20 minutes before baking.

Merry Christmas!
