Classic, All Butter Peanut Butter Blossoms
These All-Butter Peanut Butter Blossoms are perfection! Soft, chewy and studded with a solid milk chocolate candy for that classic cookie everyone loves.
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter at room temperature
- 3/4 cup white sugar divided
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 3/4 cup peanut butter smooth or chunky
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1½ cups all-purpose flour
- About 24 Hershey's Kisses any flavor (milk chocolate was used here)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with silicone liners or mist them lightly with cooking spray. Set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter, 1/2 cup of the white sugar and the brown sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in the peanut butter, egg and vanilla to combine. Lastly, beat in the baking soda and flour until a soft dough forms.
Roll rounded Tablespoonfuls of dough into the remaining white sugar and place 1" apart on the prepared baking sheets. Bake for approx. 8-10 minutes, rotating pans halfway through baking time to ensure even cooking. Allow to cool on the baking sheets for about 5 minutes before adorning the center of each cookie with a kiss candy. Cool the cookies completely before serving.
