Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar for rolling
  • 36 milk chocolate kisses

Instructions

  • Preheat oven: To 375 F degrees, and remove wrappers from chocolate kisses if necessary.
  • Add wet ingredients: In the bowl of your mixer add 1/3 cup of granulated sugar, 1 /3 cup of brown sugar, peanut butter, and butter - beat until fluffy. Next, add the egg, milk, and vanilla, and continue mixing until well incorporated.
  • Add dry ingredients: Add the flour, baking soda, and salt to the mixer and continue beating until well incorporated.
  • Shape the dough: Using a small ice cream scoop or your clean hands, shape the dough into 1 inch balls and roll in the second portion of sugar before placing on an un-greased cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining dough.
  • Bake: For 8 - 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Once removed from the oven, immediately press a chocolate kiss into the centre of each cookie; the cookie should crack around the edges.
  • Cool and enjoy: Transfer the cookies to a cooling rack and let them cool completely (if you can!) before you dig in!

Notes

  1. Store these cookies in an airtight container at room temperature and they will last 2 - 3 weeks. This will also ensure that the cookies stay soft. If you don't have an airtight container, use a regular container and add a slice of bread in order to help the cookies stay soft! It will work the same way it does with brown sugar!
  2. Blossoms actually freeze exceptionally well! All you need to do is put all the cookies into a tightly sealed container and they will last in the freezer up to 3 months! Just warm them back up in the oven and you're good to go!
