We’ve mentioned several times that we love cookies here at LJB, but have we also mentioned that we love peanut butter… and we love chocolate. So, this cookie is always a favorite of ours because it’s peanut butter and it’s chocolate and it’s candy. Is there anything better than that? I submit there is not!!!!
This is an oldie but a goodie, meaning that we’ve been making these for as long as I can remember and I still love them everytime I make them! Hope you do too!
Double Peanut Butter Blossoms
- 1 ¾ cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup light brown sugar
- ½ cup sugar
- ½ cup shortening
- 1 egg
- ½ cup peanut butter
- 2 Tablespoons milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 36 miniature peanut butter cups, wrappers removed & chilled
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
With an electric mixer in a medium bowl, combine the shortening and the sugars. Add the egg, peanut butter, vanilla, and milk. Mix to combine. Add all the dry ingredients and mix to combine.
Shape dough into walnut sized balls (I use a small cookie scoop to do this) and roll in sugar. (I don’t like to roll the sticky balls in sugar, I’m just lazy like that, so I just sprinkle with the sugar after I have them on the baking sheet.) Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake for 8-10 minutes, until bottoms are golden.
Remove from oven and immediately press one peanut butter cup in the center of each cookie. Let cool and serve.
*** You can also use Hershey Kisses for the candy. I just prefer the peanut butter cups, because I’m a peanut butter-aholic!

Oh mercy, those look downright sinful! Adding a pb cup is much better than just adding a kiss.
