Peanut Blossom Recipe

Peanut Blossom Recipe

I got the Peanut Blossoms Recipe from one of the Pillsbury Classic Cookbook in the October issue in 1989.   All my recipes I’ve gotten from cook books, family members and friends.  But most of them are from Pillsbury Classic Cookbooks, like this one.  This is one recipe that everyone seems to bake and enjoy.

Peanut Blossoms Recipe

Peanut Blossoms

1 ¾ cup flour

½ cup sugar

½ cup firmly packed brown sugar

1 tsp. baking soda

½ tsp. salt

½ cup shortening

½ cup peanut butter

2 tbsp. milk

1 tsp. vanilla

1 egg


48 candy kisses, unwrapped

Heat oven to 375 F.  In medium bowl combine all ingredients, EXCEPT sugar and kisses.  Mix on low speed until dough is stiff.  Shape dough into 1-inch balls; then roll in sugar.  Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.  IMMEDIATELY top each cookie with 1 candy kiss, pressing down firmly so cookie cracks around edges; remove from cookie sheets.
