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!
