Peanut Blossom Cookies

I’m entering a giveaway for a Kitchen-Aid Stand Mixer hosted by Brown-eyed Baker, and that’s why I’m going to share my favorite holiday recipe – peanut blossoms!

Peanut Blossom cookies are really yummy, especially when they’re still warm and the chocolate is all melty. Mmmmm. I’m planning on baking some for Mosaic’s Christmas party this Saturday, if I can get some oven time somewhere. Anyway, here’s the recipe:

Peanut Blossoms
•    1 ¾ c flour
•    ½ c regular butter
•    ½ c peanut butter
•    ½ c brown sugar
•    ½ c white sugar
•    unwrapped Hershey’s kisses
•    colored sugar


  1. Mix flour, peanut butter, brown and white sugars, regular butter
  2. Roll into small balls
  3. Put colored sugar in a bowl, then roll dough-balls in the sugar
  4. Cook for six to seven minutes
  5. Take cookies out of the oven, place one kiss on each cookie
  6. Put back in the oven for one more minute, then take out and eat while warm!

In our family, we traditionally make peanut blossoms around Christmas and use red and green colored sugar. You can easily make them appropriate for any holiday by changing the color of the sugar – we’ve done purple, pink, yellow, and blue for Easter before. You could do red and white for Valentine’s Day, orange and red for Thanksgiving, orange and purple for Halloween, even green for St. Patrick’s Day. And they’ll be just as delicious no matter when you make them!
