Easy Peanut Butter Blossoms

I discovered these cookies in a roundabout way. A friend gives out small batches of these cookies at Christmas time and I happened to share them with my grandson.  Well, it seems after Chocolate Crinkles these are his favorite cookies. I was surprised to learn that he has even baked a batch or two of these cookies.

He likes the cookies from the recipe on the back of the Betty Crocker Peanut Butter Cookie Mix. So these cookies are now included for Christmas and for special events throughout the year.

I admit I prefer a cookie that is baked from scratch. However, these Peanut Butter Blossoms are so good that one should not be bothered by using a cookie mix.  In my opinion, these are as good as the ones made from scratch. So, if you are looking for a quick, easy, and delicious cookie recipe, this is the one. In fact, the hardest part of this recipe just might be unwrapping all of the Hershey’s Kisses.

1 pouch (1 lb 5 oz) Betty Crocker peanut butter cookie mix
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 tablespoons water
1 egg
2 tablespoons sugar
36 Hershey’s Kisses Brand milk chocolates, unwrapped

Heat oven to 375°F.  In medium bowl, stir cookie mix, oil, water and egg until dough forms.

Shape dough into 36 1-inch balls; roll in sugar. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets or cookie sheets lined with parchment paper.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown.  Remove from the oven, and immediately press 1 Hersey Kiss in center of each cookie.  Remove from cookie sheets to wire racks. Cool completely and store cookies in a tightly covered container.

Depending on the size of the cookie, amount can vary.
