Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies Recipe


One of my favorite cookies are peanut butter blossoms. These take me back to childhood, baking these with my aunt. In fact, I was a peanut butter and chocolate fanatic- every day was a peanut butter sandwich (no jelly) and dessert was a huge spoonful of peanut butter sprinkled with chocolate chips. Oh, and when Halloween cme around, it was not complete unless I got Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups!
