Peanut Butter Blossoms

When I first saw a picture of these cookies I thought "I want to make those."

Then I made them.

And...meh. Don't get me wrong - this is a perfectly good peanut butter cookie recipe, and the chocolate Kiss on top is nice but...the whole package just didn't do it for me.

Have you ever made something that you had high hopes for that, in the end, didn't meet your expectations?

Peanut Butter Blossoms
How Sweet It Is
Makes 48

1 cup unsalted butter, softened

1 1/2 cups peanut butter

1 cup sugar

1 cup packed brown sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

3 1/2 cup flour

2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons milk

1/2 cup sugar for rolling

48 Hershey's Kisses, unwrapped

Preheat oven to 375F.
Cream butter and peanut butter till smooth. Add sugars and cream for 2 to 3 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating till combined. Stir in vanilla. Add flour, baking soda and salt, mixing until just combined. Add milk. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes or up to 2 days.

Roll dough into 1 inch balls and roll in sugar. Place on baking sheets about 1 inch apart. Bake for 5 minutes, remove from oven and press 1 Kiss into the middle of each cookie. Return to the oven and bake an additional 2 to 3 minutes. Remove and let cool completely.
