Baking Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies
Here are some tips to baking these cookies:
- Baking is touchy. If the butter consistancy isn’t right, your cookies can be too flat. Some of my butter tricks include keeping the butter refrigerated and beating it with my old school electric egg beaters (or you can use your KitchenAid). DO NOT melt the better. Also, once I’ve made the dough, I refrigerate it for at least 30 minutes.
- I only use KitchenAid or electric mixer for the butter. I switch to a spoon after that because I dont want to over mix. Over mixing can also make flat cookies. No Bueno.
I’m a big fan of Parchment Paper. It keeps my pans clean and the cookies also come off much easier. When the cookies come out of the oven, the pan is still hot, right? So I slide the parchment paper onto the counter so the cookies don’t keep semi cooking on that hot pan.
These peanut butter blossom cookies were such a fun cookie to get my kids involved. They loves rolling them into balls, unwrapping the hershey kisses (tip #3 buy a big bag of kisses :) they’ll sneak them all!) And then at the end their very favorite part was sinking that kiss down into the hot melty cookie.
Wait, ok, their favorite part is definitely EATING the cookie.
I have to mention this beautiful chunky wool knit blanket. I’ve been obsessed with them for a while now and now that I have one it does not disappoint! Sarah from SarahLouCo is THE BEST and such great prices. My whole family is so obsessed with it, and it perfectly compliments these peanut butter blossom cookies dontcha think?
