A Small Batch Christmas–Peanut Butter Blossoms

Is there any better flavor combination in the world better than peanut butter and chocolate? I don’t think so. Which is  why my Christmas cookie platters always include peanut butter blossoms.

A bit of peanut butter blossom trivia. Peanut butter blossoms made their debut in 1957 when their creator entered them in the  Pillsbury bake off. She made it into the top 100 finalists but lost the grand prize.  The grand prize went to a dessert called accordion treats. In 1993, peanut butter blossoms were inducted into the baking hall of fame.

Peanut Butter Blossoms


Ingredients
3/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup peanut butter
4 TBS butter
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 TBS lightly beaten egg
13 chocolate kisses

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, combine flour, salt and baking soda; mix well. In another bowl, cream the butter, white sugar and brown sugar. Add peanut butter and egg; mix well. Drop by tablespoonfuls about two inches apart onto a baking sheet lightly sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Bake 8 – 10 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately press a chocolate kiss into the cookie. Let cool on the tray for 2 – 3 minutes. Remove to a wire rack and cool completely.
