Peanut Butter Blossoms

Recipe from: Katie, (original source unknown at the moment)

These are not gluten free, so I can’t tell you if they’re any good. I didn’t make them, either. But they look good (maybe that’s just because I’m hungry right now), and I feel like adding a recipe. So here we are. 


  • ½ cup butter
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1-¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • Milk chocolate kisses


In a large mixing bowl beat the butter and peanut butter with an electric mixer on medium speed 30 seconds. Add the ½ cup sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, and baking soda. Beat till combined, scraping the sides of bowl. Beat in egg, milk, and vanilla till combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in remaining flour.

Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll the balls in the ¼ cup sugar. Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in a 350 degree oven 10 to 12 minutes or till edges are firm and bottoms are lightly browned. Immediately press a chocolate kiss into each cookie’s center. Transfer cookies to a wire rack; let cool.
