This Peanut Blossoms cookie recipe is made with shortening, peanut butter, and a combination of white and brown sugar. These peanut butter cookies are rolled in sugar and then baked until puffy and browned. The final touch is a chocolate Hershey Kiss on top!
Peanut Blossoms are a great recipe that his fun to make with the kids and even more fun to eat! These are a delicious afternoon snack idea, or to enjoy after dinner for dessert. They also make great cookies for holiday cookie trays.
Making cookies that my picky eater will love
My Grumpy hubby is a super picky eater. Sometimes I dread the question “what are you making?” Anytime I am making something, I always have him in mind and whether he will like the end product.
When I first made these Peanut Blossoms, Grumpy was convinced they were going to be crunchy because they were peanut butter. However, these peanut butter cookies are soft and slightly chewy. His first cookie convinced him they weren’t a hard cookie and he couldn’t leave them alone.

Basic ingredients you need to be sure you have.
Creamy Peanut Butter: Be sure the peanut butter you use is not all natural. This is my preferred brandto use.
Vegetable Shortening: This is an important part of the recipe and I don’t recommend you substitute anything for it. This is the brand I use.
Granulated Sugar: This is in the cookie and what you roll the peanut butter cookie dough ball in.
Brown Sugar: This is part of what makes the cookie chewy!
Hershey Kisses: They won’t be a peanut blossom unless you use a Hershey Kiss. I used milk chocolate kisses.
