Peanut butter blossom cookies are a holiday classic — and by holiday, I mean any holiday! Whip these up for your sweetheart or give them to a family member as a special sweet treat.

Easy Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies

Serves 15

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup natural creamy peanut butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup and 2 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 15 chocolate kisses, unwrapped

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper, or coat with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, mix peanut butter, egg and 1 cup sugar until combined. Move dough to the freezer for 5 minutes or refrigerator for 10 minutes to firm.

Add 2 tablespoons of sugar to a small bowl. Spray hands with cooking spray or coat with oil.

Remove dough from the refrigerator and roll dough into golf-ball-sized balls (about 15) and roll each in sugar to coat. Place each ball on prepared baking sheet, and bake in preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until bottoms are golden brown.

Remove from oven, and immediately place an unwrapped chocolate kiss in the middle of each cookie. Let cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before moving to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Cooking Notes:

  • Chill the dough in the freezer for 10 minutes to firm up their texture.
  • Do not flatten the dough before baking.
  • Press kisses into the middle of each cookie immediately after removing from the oven.
