Peanut Butter Blossoms

Peanut Butter Blossoms are probably my new favorite cookie.. yes maybe even more than chocolate chip! I've had such a hard time finding a good chocolate chip recipe that works every time because we live at such a high altitude. I always end up with flat pancake chocolate chip cookies! But these peanut butter blossom cookies have turned out perfect every time I've made them, making them one of my new go-to cookie recipes. 


1 Cup Creamy Peanut Butter
1/2 Cup Granulated Sugar
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup Butter, Softened
1 Egg
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)


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.
