Cookie Swap: Peanut Butter Blossoms Recipe

Who doesn’t love chocolate and peanut butter combo? It is a classic and so are these cookies.

And they are the next cookie recipe in my virtual holiday cookie swap this year.

How To Freeze Your Cookies Ahead Of Time

Are you looking to work ahead this holiday season and not get stressed out doing all the things at the last minute! Me too! This is why I love these peanut blossom cookies so much because they are the perfect work-ahead cookie dough.

Cookie baking tip for you: This cookie dough can be made ahead and frozen up to three months in advance. No holiday stressing with these cookies!

To freeze, just roll the cookies into balls, place on parchment covered cookie sheet in a single layer. Once frozen, you can toss them in a plastic freezer bag. To bake them, let them thaw a bit, but they can still be cold before you put them in the oven to bake. You might have to bake them a minute or two longer, so definitely check on them as they are baking.


Once you pull the cookies out of the oven, place an unwrapped Hershey’s Chocolate Kiss in the center, pushing down gently. Yes, you can use mini Reese’s Peanut Butter cups, too. They also have lots of different flavors of Hershey’s kisses, like caramel or white chocolate swirl.

Baking tip from the pros: Be sure to unwrap a few kisses or cups to snack on while you bake. Come on…you know we all eat the candy while we bake!
