Peanut Butter Blossoms

Before Christmas, I made peanut butter blossoms.  This was a cookie that my Mom never made growing up and I was only introduced to it in middle school at my friends house.  Her mom made these and I remember sneaking into the dining room where she would have all the cookies stored and I’d unwrap a plate and eat all the pb blossoms off it. hehehehe I just couldn’t help myself!  I’m sure her Mom went a little crazy wondering where all these cookies went! Peanut Butter Blossoms by JavaCupcake.com

And now every Christmas, I make these cookies and at least half of what I make ends up in my belly instead of on the plates of goodies I’m sharing with my friends!   These cookies are super easy to make and are a classic cookie that’s loved by everyone.  This recipe comes directly from the Hershey’s website and I did nothing special to it… cause it’s perfect the way it is!

Enjoy!
