Next to chocolate chip cookies these are one of the most timeless cookies ever. I have been enjoying these for three decades and hopefully will keep eating them for many more.
Hershey’s Peanut Blossom Cookies2 tablespoons milk
½ cup shortening 1 teaspoon vanilla
¾ cup creamy peanut butter 1 ½ cups all purpose flour
1/3 cup granulated sugar 1 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 cup brown sugar ½ teaspoon salt
1 egg Granulated sugar
Heat oven to 375°F. Remove wrappers from chocolates.
Beat shortening and peanut butter in large bowl until well blended. Add 1/3 cup granulated sugar and brown sugar; beat until fluffy. Add egg, milk and vanilla; beat well. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into peanut butter mixture.
Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in granulated sugar; place on ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Immediately press a chocolate into center of each cookie; cookie will crack around edges.
Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.
