Chocolate and peanut butter. It really is weakness of mine! Lately I have been watching this BBC show called Lark Rise to Candlewood. A series my family got me started on, it is really good anyone else heard of it?? I am alone? Anyways this postmistress lady in the show says after every pleasure she indulges in says, "This is my one weakness". It is an excuse to indulge. I feel the same way so often.... If only peanut butter and chocolate were my only weakness, but they are a huge one for me and these are some of my favorites!!!!!
Peanut Butter Blossoms
Makes about 3 dozen cookies
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
3 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
Granulated sugar for rolling
Hershey’s Chocolate Kiss’s
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2. Beat peanut butter and butter until well mixed, then beat in the two sugars until light. Add the egg, milk, and vanilla and beat until fluffy. Whisk the flour, baking soda, and salt together, then add in 3 batches to the peanut butter mixture, beating well between additions.
3. Roll dough into 1/2 inch balls. Roll in granulated sugar and place on ungreased baking sheets. Bake for about 7 minutes and remove from oven.
4. Immediately press a Hershey’s Kiss into the center of each cookie. Let cookies cool a minute, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
The cookies will keep for several days at room temperature in an airtight container.
