Peanut Butter Blossoms



 This is my husband’s favorite Christmas cookie.  Usually they are made with chocolate kisses in the center – but I did not feel like taking the time to unwrap all of those candies so I tried something new this time and used mini peanut butter cups (no wrappers).  My granddaughter loved them,  I guess we will see if Grandpa does too.  Enjoy.







13/4 cups sifted all-purpose flour

1 tsp. baking soda

½ tsp. salt

½ up butter, softened

½ cup creamy peanut butter

½ cup granulated sugar

½ cup brown sugar, packed

1 egg

1 tsp. vanilla (The Spice House)

1/3 cup granulated sugar

1 package 8oz of mini peanut butter cups – or chocolate kisses



Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Sift together flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.  In separate bowl, cream butter and peanut butter; add sugars gradually and cream until fluffy.  Add egg and vanilla; mix well.  Add sifted ingredients gradually and mix.  Shape rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into balls; roll in 1/3 cup granulated sugar.  Bake on ungreased cookie sheets at 375 degrees for 8 minutes.  Remove from oven; press a candy firmly on each cookie so that the cookie cracks around the edges.  Return to oven and bake 2-3 minutes longer.  Cool on wire cooling racks.  Makes 3 ½ dozen.
