#13 :: Peanut Butter Blossoms

Yesterday was leftover day. All these great meals we cooked supplied us with more than one meal. Most of it I had eaten this week for lunch, but last night we had to polish off some leftovers before they went to waste. This project isn't just about not eating fast food, it's about spending wisely on groceries and using every bit of what we buy. Nothing goes to waste!

I still baked though....Peanut Butter Blossom cookies. Since we received a ton of Hershey's Kisses in my mom's package, Jamie wanted me to make cookies with them. So, I called my mom for her recipe. These always make me feel closer to home!


1 3/4 cup flour

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1/2 cup (1 stick) of butter (room temp.)

1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

1 egg

2 Tbsp. milk

1 tsp. vanilla extract

24-36 Hershey's Kisses


In a medium bowl combine the flour, baking soda and salt. In another mixing bowl, mix the butter and peanut butter until thoroughly mixed and creamy. Add the sugar and brown sugar and mix at medium speed until fluffy. Add the egg,milk and vanilla and mix until well combined.

Add the dry ingredients gradually to the wet ingredients, mixing them in as you go. Roll the dough into 1 inch balls and place them 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes. Let them cool for about 5 minutes, then place a Hershey's Kiss in the center of each cookie. {Do this while they're warm, not hot, so the warmth will melt the kiss into place}

Makes about 36 cookies.

Recipe from My Mom.
