Peanut Butter Blossoms

These easy peanut butter blossom cookies melt in your mouth, with a peanut butter dough, then placing a hershey kiss in the center of the cookie, melts just slightly and roll in some sugar for an extra little sweet crunch.

You can even if desired add a little drizzle of icing and sprinkles to make them a little more special.These make 48 cookies, perfect for a cookie exchange, and I think everyone should have these delicious little bites of heaven on your cookie table every holiday..
