Awesome Blossoms

Alrighty, I just about had a panic attack.  I forgot all my login info!  But i'm here now.  All is good.

I've had this major craving for peanut butter blossoms, which is extremely rare, but I'm going with it and making some. :)  

So I went to the grocery store this morning for some kisses&reeses, thinking they wouldn't be as much as they were...$4.29 for a small bag....I about fainted in the store.  However, I went next door to Kmart, which I've never been a huge fan of.  Now I remember why.  They talked down to me because I wouldn't sign up for a rewards card, or whatever it's called.   Yeah...way to be extremely rude to your customer.  And to top it off you can fill out a survey online and possibly win $200,  my cashier told me "I'm not even going to bother explaining that to you, you probably don't have a computer."  Exxxxxxcuse me?! Anyways, these melt in your mouth pieces of heaven are ready for chowing on!

Start by grabbing all of your ingredients:
Baking Soda
Granulated Sugar
Brown Sugar
Unsalted butter
Vanilla Extract
1 Egg
Hershey's Kisses and/or Reeses Mini Peanut Butter Cups

Unwrap approx. 48 pieces and set aside.

Remember to reward yourself with one, after going through that torture!

In a large bowl, combine butter, peanut butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar.

Beat until light and fluffy.

Add egg and vanilla extract.

Add flour and baking soda.

Finished dough will look something like this.

Roll into 1" balls, and coat in granulated sugar. (If dough is too soft to roll place in refrigerator for 30-60 minutes.)

 Place on an ungreased cookie sheet. 

Bake on 375 F for 8-10 minutes, or until golden brown.

Remove from the oven and immediately push candy into the center of the cookie.

 Place cookies on a cooling rack.

 Go on, try to resist eating one (or five) fresh from the oven.
