Better Peanut Butter Blossoms




Ok, truth time...I tried the best rated Peanut Butter Blossom recipe online and I really didn't like them at all.  The cookie was hard and didn't taste peanut-buttery enough.  So this recipe is back to the basics.  It is an awesome soft and velvety Peanut Butter cookie recipe with a Hershey kiss in it.  We love them!

Ingredients:
1 cup unsalted butter
1 1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda

Directions:
Cream butter, peanut butter, and sugars together in a bowl; beat in eggs.  In a separate bowl, sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; stir into butter mixture. Use a small cookie scoop to scoop dough into 1 inch balls and put on baking sheets. Bake in a preheated 375 degrees 8 minutes or until cookies just ever so slightly begin to brown.  Remove cookies to a plate and immediately insert an unwrapped Hershey kiss. Delish!
