Perfect Peanut Blossoms

Need to make holiday cookies fast?? I suggest this recipe! Throwing everything together takes minimal time, and they are out of the oven in under 10 minutes! I brought these to Heather’s cookie swap, but didn’t make enough to munch on! Chris had a hankering for them last night, so late night baking ensued!

How to do it:

Heat oven to 375°F. Combine 1/2 cup sugar, brown sugar, butter and peanut butter in large bowl. Beat at medium speed until light and fluffy. Add egg, vanilla and salt; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour and baking soda. Continue beating, scraping bowl often, until well mixed.

Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll balls in 1/4 cup sugar. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.  Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until very lightly golden brown. Immediately press 1 chocolate kiss in center of each cookie. Remove from cookie sheets; cool completely on wire racks.
