what are peanut butter blossoms?
peanut butter blossoms are more than just an incredibly delicious cookie! these cookies are made of peanut butter cookie dough and a hershey kiss pressed right into the middle after they come out of the oven.
it's hard to do but let these cookies cool after placing the hershey kiss in! this allows the hershey kiss to set in so that they don't fall apart once you take a bite.
as for the texture of these cookies, it's absolute perfection. the peanut butter cookie dough turns into a soft cookie that melts in your mouth. and when the cookie is paired with the rich chocolate...absolute HEAVEN!
frequently asked questions

most likely due to overbaking the cookie or adding too much flour. be sure to level your flour as you measure so that no excess flour is added
this is due to adding too much flour to the batter, this decreases the amount of moisture in the cookie...especially after baking them
yes! you can freeze the dough and thaw when you want to bake the cookies. do not freeze the dough with the chocolate toppings as that will affect the result of the cookies
freezing the dough to bake later will not change the taste nor the consistency of the cookies
