|Peanut Blossoms with Dove, not Kisses|
This recipe comes from King Arthur Flour. The only thing I changed is that I use Dove Milk Chocolate Promises instead of Hershey's Kisses. They taste waaaaaay better with the Dove chocolate. This is a favorite of mine and Ezra's now. I can't make them just for the heck of it, or I end up eating half of them myself. I have to wait for special occasions to make them, and when I do, they go fast.
Dove Peanut Blossoms
Preheat oven to 375°F.
In a large bowl, beat the butter, shortening, and peanut butter until well blended. Add the sugars; beat until light and fluffy. Add the egg, milk, and vanilla, and beat well. Stir the flour, soda, and salt together. Gradually mix into the wet ingredients.
Shape the dough into 1 ¼-inch balls. Roll in sugar. Place balls on a parchment-lined baking sheet, and bake in a preheated 375°F oven for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from the oven and immediately place one chocolate Promise on each cookie. Then go back and press each Promise gently into the cookie. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
