Peanut Butter Blossoms Cookies

I am so excited to share one of my favorite recipes with you today!
You may remember when I posted about my Grammy's 103rd birthday {HERE} and I got to bring home Grammy's recipes & cookbooks. I am excited to share one of those recipes. 
Believe it or not, I have never made these cookies. I have eaten them since I was a kid, but I have never made them myself!
But, now I have the recipe....and I am sharing it with you! 
The recipe is for a peanut butter cookie from one of Grammy's cookbooks from 1942. They are amazing Peanut Butter Cookies, and because I love peanut butter blossom cookies, I added the Hershey Kiss to them.
Here is what you need:
 1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 stick of butter, softened
1/2 cup peanut butter (I use Skippy Natural)
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 3/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup sugar (for dipping)
 Directions:
Combine 1/2 cup sugar, brown sugar, butter and peanut butter in bowl.
Beat at medium speed until light and fluffy.
Add egg, vanilla and salt; continue beating until well mixed.
Add flour and baking soda; beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed.

Shape dough into 1-inch balls If dough is too soft, refrigerate 30-60 minutes.
I use a cookie scoop & then roll with my hands.
Roll balls in 1/4 cup sugar.
Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes or until very lightly golden brown.
(If you just wanted amazing & soft peanut butter cookies, you could just leave them like this and not add the kiss.)
Immediately press chocolate kiss in center of each cookie.
Remove to cooling racks & then ENJOY!
They are so soft & delicious.

 Last weekend our court had a 49ers vs Raiders Football watching party (most of our court cheers for the 49ers, but we have a few Raiders fans) I brought these cookies to the party and they were a big hit!
I will be sharing a few more of Grammy's recipes this month....next up will be fudge!
