Peanut butter blossoms are a classic. I think almost everyone’s had them before at some point. But recently a friend of mine brought some extras to me that her neighbor made, and they blew my mind. They were soft, chewy, and just overall amazing. I became determined to recreate these perfect peanut butter blossoms to take to Thanksgiving at my dad’s house, and I’m pretty sure I figured it out. Just a heads up – you should make extra of these because they won’t last long.
Here’s what you’ll need for the best peanut butter blossoms:
1 Cup Creamy Peanut Butter
1/2 Cup Granulated Sugar
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup Butter, Softened
1 1/2 Cups All Purpose Flour
2 Teaspoons Vanilla
2 Teaspoons Baking Soda
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
Chocolate Kisses (I used dark chocolate ones)
Additional Granulated Sugar (about 1/3 cup)
Here’s what you do:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Meanwhile, using an electric mixer combine 1/2 cup sugar, brown sugar, butter and peanut butter on medium until well mixed.
Add egg, vanilla, and salt to the peanut butter mixture continuing to mix on medium speed. Add flour and baking soda and switch speed to low.
Form dough into 1 inch balls and roll in sugar. Space around 2 inches apart on a greased cookie sheet. Bake 9-10 minutes.
Immediately after moving from oven press a chocolate kiss into the center of each cookie. Then carefully move cookies to a cooling rack. Allow to cool completely before wrapping up or serving.
I finalized these cookies by wrapping them up with festive plates and cookie plate wrappers that I found at Big Lots so I could give them to family members to take home.

Summer @ Banana Hammocks & Tutus says
These are definitely a classic, and I love when someone does them right – all puffy and beautiful – rather than flattened out with the kiss on before the cookies get baked – YUCK! 🙂 I love giving bourbon balls. They're a crowd pleaser in my crowd. #client
YUM! Peanut butter cookies are so tasty. I like them chewy and warm, but top them with a chocolate kiss and they are amazing.

I love peanut butter blossoms! I recently created my own spin on these by making chocolate hazelnut blossoms. Yum!! I think it's about time I make these again.
Hi, your recipe calls for 1 cup of PB plus 1/2 cup of butter. All the others Ive seen only use 1/2 cup of PB. Before I mix these up, I just want to make sure this is correct??
Yes that’s how I make them!!
How many cookies does each batch make?
Annie Jacox says
can you prepare the dough and use the next day?
I love these too, always make them at Christmas. Also make them at Valentine’s Day using a Dove chocolate heart instead of a kiss and they are perfect!
This is my husband’s favorite cookie and I thank you for this recipe. I wanted to comment that I could not find a place to print the recipe and ended up typing it for my own use. Thanks!
