Peanut Butter Blossoms

Every magazine that I have opened in the last several months has had the same Hersery’s kisses ad and recipe. I clipped it out the first time I saw it and finally made them last night. They are very easy to make and not all that time consuming. Try them and give them to the peanut butter lovers you love.

It is not Christmas without this delectable classic cookie. Can't wait until I make a batch. Many thanks for the nudge to get in the kitchen to do just that...

Oh! I love these. Is there anything better than chocolate and peanut butter together? I have to be careful when I make these. I'll eat the whole batch!

These are a school holiday party classic. We used to have them all the times as kids, but I haven't tasted one in awhile.

I love dough like this where you can really mold it. A great combination.
