Peanut Butter and chocolate is such a great combination. I have already made Salted Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl Cookies, but my recipe collection simply would not be complete without these peanut butter blossom cookies. There's a reason these are often found at cookie exchanges and holiday dinners; they are so delicious, and they are pretty beautiful too! Besides - who doesn't want a kiss from their dessert?
The dough for these cookies was based off my Peanut Butter Reese's Pieces Cookies, but I modified it slightly to make it even more peanut buttery since there's no added peanut flavor from Reese's Pieces in this variation. The cookies are easy to make but there are a few tips I have that will help ensure success.
I hope you try these cookies this holiday season! I will be making these for my holiday cookie box this year, along with some other favorites, including Oatmeal Cranberry White Chocolate Cookies.
Preheat oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside
In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream butter and peanut butter until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes
Beat in granulated sugar and brown sugar until fully combined
Thoroughly mix in eggs and vanilla
Stir flour mixture into peanut butter mixture slowly, until fully combined. Dough will be quite stiff, you may need to finish mixing with your hands
Divide dough into 36 even balls, about the size of a golf ball, then roll each in the sugar and place on prepared baking sheet
Bake in preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until cookies are puffed up and slightly golden
Remove from oven and allow to cool on pan about 5 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack and carefully push a chocolate into the center of each cookie
Transfer cookies to fridge for about 30 minutes to allow chocolate to firm up, then store at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
