Peanut Butter Blossoms

December 23, 2016

Soft peanut butter cookies dipped in sugar and topped off with a chocolate candy kiss.

My sister hosts Christmas every year. She does dinner the right way..she caters. Well, not the whole dinner. Just mostly the main course. She makes sides, salads and appetizers. I usually bring some desserts and Chex Mix. My sister is crazy in love with Chex Mix. Not any fancy flavors, just the original. She has literally eaten for her meal at times.

As for my dessert choices, I always ask my kids, they pick something and we make it together. It's such a nice tradition.

My oldest son is a total peanut butter addict. He loves it on just about any food. So, every year, he chooses these cookies to make for Christmas. My daughter always tells him "you always pick those!" and he responds,"because, they are so good!" Oh boy, he is so right.

These are such a classic cookie around Christmas time. I know there are a ton of different varieties of them on the web, but, we stick with the original.  A soft, peanut butter cookies, covered in sugar and then, when they are warm, topped of with a single Hershey's Kiss candy.  So darn delicious.

You still have plenty of time to make these lovelies for the holiday..enjoy!
