Peanut Butter Blossoms

These are my moms favorite cookies.

We make these every year too :-)

Peanut Butter Blossoms (From: Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book)

  • 2 T. milk
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 1 3/4 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 c. sugar

Beat shortening and peanut butter with an electric mix 30 seconds. Add the 1/2 c. sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, and baking soda. Beat until combined, scraping bowl. Beat in egg, milk, and vanilla. Beat in as much flour as you can. Stir in any remaining flour.

Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll balls in the 1/4 c. sugar. Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
