These Peanut Butter Blossom cookies are so soft and chewy! The creamy peanut butter cookie is covered with a sugar coating and topped with a Hershey’s kiss. These cookies are so quick to throw together and are fabulous to eat while warm when the chocolate is still gooey!



  • 1/2 cup sugar (100 grams)
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar (109 grams)
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 13/4 cups all-purpose flour (217 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup sugar (to roll cookie dough balls in)
  • Hershey kisses


  1. Use a stand mixer, hand mixer, or whisk to cream together the sugar, brown sugar, butter, and peanut butter until smooth and creamy.
  2. Add the egg and vanilla extract and give it a quick stir to combine the egg and vanilla extract.
  3. Next, you will add the flour and baking soda and mix on medium speed until the flour is thoroughly incorporated. Use a rubber spatula to catch any excess flour on the bowl and give it one last stir.
  4. Cover the cookie dough with saran wrap and place it in the refrigerator for at least half an hour.
  5. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  6. Place the last 1/4 cup of sugar into a small bowl. Form the cookie dough into 1-1/2 inch balls. Roll the balls in the sugar bowl making sure all surfaces are covered by sugar.
  7. Line cookie pans with parchment paper or silicone baking sheet. Place sugared dough balls onto pans approximately three inches apart. Do not flatten balls.
  8. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until tops are slightly browned. While the cookies are baking, unwrap the chocolate kisses.
  9. Immediately after taking out the cookies from the oven, place a chocolate kiss onto the center of each cookie. Let cool for a few minutes before placing cookies onto baking rack to cool.
