I like peanut butter cookies. I LOVE peanut butter blossoms !
When my local grocery store had a sale on Hershey kisses, these cookies immediately came to mind. My boys love anything with peanut butter!
Generally, there are two things that I don’t love about peanut butter blossoms. They tend to be a bit dry and salty. To remedy this, I added sour cream and left out the salt . The sour cream made them very moist and without the salt they had the perfect flavor!
My husband doesn’t generally like peanut butter blossoms. But with these cookies, I was able to convince him that peanut butter blossoms aren’t so bad. Come on, give them a try. I know you will like them too!
