Peanut Butter Blossoms

Peanut butter and chocolate are a wonderful combination. These are one of my favorite cookies.  I make them every Christmas, however, they are great any time of the year. 

1 cup butter
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
2 TBS milk
3 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt

Mix butter and peanut butter together until creamy.  Add brown sugar and white sugar.  Mix well.  Add eggs, vanilla and milk.  Stir together the flour, baking soda and salt.  Add to creamed mixture.

Roll dough into 1 inch balls.  Place a 1/2 cup of white sugar in a bowl.  Roll the balls of dough in the sugar.  Place 2 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake at 375 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.  Check on the cookies after about 8 minutes.

Immediately after removing from the oven, press a Hershey's kiss in the center of each cookie.  Place the cookies on a rack to cool.

Makes 48 cookies
