I once went on a road trip with Peter Pan. It was really skippy, but it didn’t last very long – you might say it was over in a jif when our car got smuckered by an oncoming taxi cab. Nevertheless, some good times were plantered in my memory.
As you may have guessed, I have a peanut butter recipe for you today. It’s a classic one and one that everyone should have in their recipe collection. (Unless, you know, they were allergic to peanut butter or fun).
Around Christmas and Easter time, I like to make them with either a Hershey kiss or some other type of chocolate in the middle (as pictured). But that’s optional – this is just an all around good cookie recipe to make any time. Or every time. It’s a cookie that would make Peter Pan proud! Be sure and drink a glass of milk while you eat a couple!
Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies
- 1/2 butter, softened
- 1 cup peanut butter (chunky or creamy)
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 1/4 cups flour
- 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350.
Beat the butter and peanut butter together until well mixed. Add the sugars and beat until smooth.
Add the egg and mix well. Add the milk and vanilla. Mix well.
Add the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Mix.
Roll into balls and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. You can roll the cookie balls in a bowl of sugar, if desired - but it's optional.
Gently flatten the cookies with the back of the fork a couple of times, crossing over each other.
Bake for 10-12 minutes.
Let cook for a minute or two, then, if using, place the chocolate kiss or candy in the middle of the cookie.
If using chocolate, let cool completely so that the chocolate candy doesn't fall off!
