25 Days of Cookies: Day 6 Peanut Butter Blossoms

These are an American tradition. They are much loved by my good friend Amanda and my husband. This is my version which is easier and simplified slightly.

What you need:
12 Hershey kisses unwrapped
1 cup of peanut butter (not the natural or organic stuff, we need full on Americana in all its processed glory)
1 cup of sugar
1 egg

What you do:
1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Mix the peanut butter, egg, and sugar in a bowl.
3. Dollop out teaspoon sized semi circles on to a parchment lined baking sheet
4. Bake for 10 minutes they will be soft
5. Press a Hershey kiss in the center of each cookie while they are still warm.
6. Allow to cool... and enjoy with a nice glass of milk

For other variations you can roll the cookies in colored sprinkles to add a little more holiday sparkle.

Happy Christmas! As always, much love, many blessings and happy baking.
