The softest peanut butter blossoms recipe!  Made with butter and shortening to get that buttery taste and also brown sugar with the white sugar to give it a depth of flavor.  These are the best!


  • 3 Cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 Cup shortening
  • 1/2 Cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 Cup sugar
  • 1 Cup light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 Cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • Hershey Kisses


  1. Preheat oven to 350˚ F.
  2. Combine flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.  Mix well and set aside.
  3. Cream sugars, shortening and butter together in a mixing bowl.  Add beaten eggs, peanut butter and vanilla.  Mix well until incorporated.
  4. Add dry ingredients to your wet ingredients.  Using a cookie scoop, roll the dough between your hands to form a bowl.  Roll the dough in sugar.
  5. Bake for 13 – 14 minutes.  Remove from oven and press in a Hershey kiss into each cookie.  Bake an additional 2 minutes.
  6. Let cool for 3-5 minutes on the pan and then carefully move to a cooling wrack.
