Peanut Blossom Cookies are a peanut butter cookie with a Hershey's Chocolate Kiss sitting happily on top. Some say these cookies resemble little hats and, in fact, Maida Heatter tells us in her book "Maida Heatter's Cookies" that this recipe is an "old American recipe that is sometimes called Sombreros".

Cooking Recipe

Ingredients:
Peanut Blossom Cookies:
1/2 cup (113 grams) unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4 cup (185 grams) peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)
1/3 cup (70 grams) light brown sugar
1/3 cup (65 grams) granulated white sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 tbsp milk
1 & 1/2 cups (195 grams) all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt

Coating (optional):
1/3 cup (65 grams) granulated white sugar

Garnish:
48 Chocolate Kisses, unwrapped

Directions:
1. Peanut Blossom Cookies: Line three baking sheets with parchment paper.

2. In the bowl of your electric mixer (or with a hand mixer), beat the butter until creamy and smooth. Add the peanut butter and sugars and beat until light and fluffy (about 2 - 3 minutes). Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat to combine. Beat in the milk. In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to the peanut butter mixture and beat until incorporated. Cover and chill the batter for about an hour, or until firm enough to roll into balls.

3. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C) and place rack in the center of the oven.

4. Roll the batter into 1 inch (2.5) round balls. Place the granulated white sugar in a shallow bowl and roll each ball in the sugar. Place on the prepared baking sheet, spacing about 2 inches (5 cm) apart.

5. Bake the cookies for about 8 - 10 minutes, or until the cookies are lightly browned. Immediately upon removing the cookies from the oven, place a unwrapped Chocolate Kiss into the center of each cookie, pressing down gently until the cookie just starts to crack. Cool completely on a wire rack.
