Peanut Butter Blossoms

     While making all of my Christmas cookies, I thought it would be a good idea to post a recipe to one of the favorites.  I have always gotten rave responses about the Peanut Butter Blossoms from my family and friends.  It's a classic cookie, and I realize that there are lots of recipes out there, but some work for some and some work better for others.  So here's mine.

     **Oh, and something a little funny about these cookies is what my family used to always call them.  Growing up I didn't know the actual name for these cookies, because I always heard them called "Boobie Cookies."  Yep, my family was pretty mature!!  Seriously though, it IS what they look like :). **

Anyways, here are the ingredients that you will need:

1 3/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup softened butter
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1T milk
1 tsp vanilla
unwrapped Hershey Kisses
extra sugar

**I doubled all of these measurements and it made 102 cookies**

1.  In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, salt, and set aside. 
2.  In a large bowl, beat the butter until creamy.  Then add one at a time the sugar, vanilla, milk, and eggs.  On low speed, mix in the peanut butter. 
3.  With a large mixing spoon, slowly pour in the flour mixture and mix well.  

     This is where I like to put it in the fridge for a while, at least an hour.  I find it hardens the dough a little bit and makes it less sticky.  If you don't have the time for this, then feel free to add a little flour until it doesn't stick to your hands.  

I also used this time to get my eager to help 6 year old to unwrap all of the chocolates!

4.  Once you are ready to do the baking part, roll the dough into small balls. 

5.  Put some sugar in a bowl, and roll the balls in it until they are completely covered. 

6.  In an oven preheated to 350, place the balls a few inches apart on a baking sheet.  I like to put them on parchment paper so they do not stick.  Bake them from 6-8 minutes. USA, LLC

7.  Pull them out of the oven and gently push a Hershey Kiss into the center of each cookie.  Put back into the oven for another 2-3 minutes to help the chocolate attach to the cookie.  

8.  Let cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet before moving to a wire rack.  Cool completely.
