Classic Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies
One cookie my family makes every Christmas is Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies. Its no wonder they were originally a Pilsbury Bakeoff Winner. The peanut butter cookie topped with a hershey kiss literally melts in your mouth fresh out of the oven. Nothing is better than classic Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies on your Christmas cookie tray.
You could even use pre-made peanut butter dough for your Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies if you are running short on time. We did that one year, and they still tasted great.
