Baking Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies

Here are some tips to baking these cookies:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.

  1. Just letting you know there’s mention of red food coloring in your recipe, seems to be a mistake. :)

    These were my favorite cookies growing up. My sister and I had a baked goods stall at our local farmer’s market and we made *a lot* of blossoms. They go so fast! We always preferred using the brach’s chocolate stars instead of hershey’s kisses. The look and shape of them just looks so much prettier to me. Also something about them being shorter and wider? They seem to give a better ratio of melty chocolate to cookie in each bite rather than the big lump of chocolate in the middle. *shrug* they’ll all good.
