My go to recipe for Peanut Butter Blossoms! This cookie is perfect and bring a smile to everyone's face! Great for home, family, friends, kids and gift giving! 12/23/2011
This recipe is great for holidays, cookie exchanges, etc. Our family has made this recipe for decades. The cookies always look great and everyone loves them. It is important not to overbake these cookies and to place the kisses in the cookie as fast as possible. We push the kisses in the cookie until we feel some resistance otherwise the kisses tend to fall out. 12/20/2011
