Soft-baked Peanut Butter Blossoms are packed with peanut butter flavor and topped with a sweet Hershey’s Kiss. These easy cookies are great for peanut butter lovers!
- ½ cup (113g) unsalted butter, at room temperature
- ¾ cups (396g) creamy peanut butter
- ¾ cups (165g) light brown sugar
- ¼ cup (48g) granulated sugar plus additional ¼ cup for coating.
- 1 large egg
- 2 teaspoons (10ml) pure vanilla extract
- 1 ¼ cups (175g) all-purpose flour
- ½ teaspoons baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 24 Hershey Kisses
- Unwrap and freeze the Hershey Kisses. Preheat the oven to 350° F. Combine the butter with peanut butter and beat until completely smooth; scrape down the bowl occasionally. Next, add the brown and granulated sugar. Beat on medium speed until well combined, 2-3 minutes.
- Next, add the eggs and vanilla extract and continue beating until well incorporated.
- In a separate bowl, combine the remaining dry ingredients. Stir to combine and slowly add the dry ingredients into the dough, mixing at low speed until the dough starts to form and ingredients are well combined.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking sheet. Scoop the dough using a medium cookie scoop and then roll in granulated sugar. Place on a sheet pan, 2 inches apart.
- Bake for 11-13 minutes. The center of the cookie should be slightly underbaked but not gooey. Remove the cookie from the oven and immediately press a Hershey Kiss in the middle. Carefully transfer the cookies to another baking sheet and place the baking sheet in the refrigerator or freezer to prevent the chocolate from melting. Once the chocolate and set completely, store these cookies in an airtight container.
- Instead of a Hershey Kiss, try putting a miniature peanut butter cup in the middle
- Placing the baked cookies in the refrigerator or freezer will help to prevent the chocolate from melting. If left at room temperature, the chocolate will likely melt as it cools.
- The finished cookies can be frozen in an airtight container. Serve at room temperature for best results.
