How to make Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies
I prefer to use a large stand mixer. I’ve grown up using a Bosch Mixer and love it. find out why I love my Bosh Mixer and the first recipe I learned to make. You can also choose to use a Hand Mixer if you wish.
Preheat Oven to 375 degrees so it’s good and hot when you are ready to bake.
Begin by mixing Softened Butter and Peanut Butter. Cream until smooth and add egg and sugar. Mix until light and fluffy.
Add Vanilla and Brown Sugar and mix until fulled incorporated
In a separate bowl combine Flour, Baking Soda and Baking Power. Add flour mixture to Butter Mixer a little at a time.
Use a Medium Cookie Scoop size #24 to scoop cookie dough balls and roll into sugar. Place on baking sheet 2-3 inches apart
Bake at 375 degrees for 7-9 minutes. Edges should be a light golden brown
Remove from Oven and allow to cool for 1 minute. Place 1 Heart Shaped Chocolate Peanut Butter on top of Warm Cookie pressing down slightly.
Remove from baking sheet to fully cool on cooling rack
Store in a sealed container or Zip-loc bag
Freeze for up to 3 months
Reeses Peanut Butter Heart Chocolates melt easily. Chill chocolate in refrigerator for 30 minutes prior to placing on hot cookies.
Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies were invented in 1957 by Freda Strasel Smith.
Do you ever wonder why some cookies are flat and others aren’t? It’s not all about adding more flour. That will make a cookie dry and hard. Here is a tip. Chilling cookie dough cools and hardens the fats used in the recipe. Those fats hold their shape longer during the cooking process and result in thicker cookies.
I suggest using softened butter. But not super soft butter. What’s the difference? Well softened butter has sat out on the counter for about 1 hour away from heat in a cool spot. Super soft butter melts as you touch it. It’s so soft it’s difficult to unwrap from the wax paper coating.
There is no need to use super soft butter when making cookies. So do yourself a favor and pay attention to the texture of the butter used. You just might enjoy a thicker cookie after baking.
When in doubt, it never hurts to chill cookie dough before baking. I prefer to place cookies on a cookie sheet and chill as individual cookies.
How Long Should you Refrigerate Cookie Dough?
If you choose to chill cookie dough a general rule of thumb is chilling for 30 minutes.
