I grew up on these at Christmas time as I am sure you did as well. Who can resist peanut butter and chocolate, right? I love this combo and I love that these are so easy to make as well. ENJOY!
PEANUT BUTTER BLOSSOMS
Sift together in small bowl:

1/2 cup of sugar
1/3 cup of peanut butter
1/2 cup of brown sugar
Add 1 egg (room temp)
Add 1 teaspoon vanilla
Then blend in the dry ingredients and mix well

Remove and top each cookie with candy kiss, press until cookie cracks
I love Sallys Baking Addiction and her seasonal cookie palooza. Every day she posts new cookies and I come home ready to start baking! I would love to try them all.
Since I can’t do that, I choose my favorites and try to at least make a few each holiday season. She had these cookies on her blog a few years ago and I tried them for a cookie exchange. I absolutely fell in love with these and so did everyone who tried them.
I am attaching her link to the recipe for you to try yourself. I also have it listed under cookies on this blog. I think you will enjoy these as much as I do. And by the way…my house smells amazing today!
2 1/4 cup flour
3/4 cup + 2 tsp of light brown sugar
3/4 cup + 2 tsp of sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup shortening (or butter flavor shortening) I use Crisco.
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup M&Ms
Mix together the dry ingredients in a bowl
Beat the shortening, brown sugar, granulated sugar and vanilla together in mixer. Add the eggs, then slowly pour in the dry ingredients.
Stir in the M&Ms by hand and drop on cookie sheet. I add extra M&Ms on top!
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes (depending on your oven) or until just golden brown. Cool then place on wire rack.
We love baking sweets on all occasions and love celebrating our freedom!

My daughter found this recipe and thought it was so cute, so she made these as well.
I found this recipe for Lemon Crinkle Cookies last summer at a wonderful food blog, Cooking Classy. I love everything I make from her website, and when I saw these cookies I knew I found another winner! This is my favorite lemon cookie recipe! These cookies just make me smile.
Next time life gives you lemons…make these delicious Lemon Crinkle Cookies!
This has been the week of M&Ms for me. I have made M&M cookies, M&M chocolate covered peanut clusters and tried M&M Saltine Toffee for the first time. Since I purchased a huge bag of pastel colored M&Ms, I tried to make sure and use them all by Easter!
I used these wonderful little chocolates in anything I could think of and also ate a few handfuls along the way!
I did not leave the saltines and toffee in the oven quite long enough. This was still very tasty, but next time I will leave in for the full 8 minutes as the recipe calls for! I was not patient enough. What can I say, I was so hungry!
Cookie starts with the letter C
Let’s think of other things that start with the letter C
Oh who cares about other things…C is for cookie, that’s good enough for me!
I wanted to make something sweet for my girls at work on Friday. Everyone loves chocolate chip cookies, so that was easy and I always have all the ingredients for these cookies in my kitchen.
When I find I also have the Ghirardelli white chocolate chips and dark molasses, it only makes sense to make these wonderful cookies as well! They were such a big hit last time I made them.
You can find this recipe here. Click here for recipe They are called Soft Baked White Chocolate Chip/Molasses Cookies. I discovered these from Sally’s Baking Blog. I love her blog and her cookbooks! I use my cookbooks all the time and they always seem to find a way into the background of my pictures of cookies and cupcakes!
