Soft and chewy, this Peanut Butter Blossoms cookie recipe is THE BEST. They'll disappear quickly, so be sure to snag one for yourself!


  • ½ cup shortening
  • ¾ cup creamy peanut butter
  • ⅓ light brown sugar, packed
  • ⅔ cup granulated sugar, divided
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 Tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • 24 Hershey Kisses, unwrapped


  1. Combine shortening and peanut butter in a large bowl. Add ⅓ cup granulated sugar and brown sugar and beat until fluffy. Add egg, milk, and vanilla. Fold in flour, baking soda, and kosher salt until blended.
  2. Shape the dough into balls using a 2 Tbsp cookie scoop. Scoop the dough, roll in hands to a ball, then roll in ⅓ cup granulated sugar.
  3. Bake cookies in a 375 degree F oven for 12-14 minutes, until lightly browned. Cookies may appear slightly under cooked, that's OKAY.
  4. Unwrap Hershey kisses and immediately press into cookie when taken out of the oven. Allow to cool on wire rack. ENJOY.
