Peanut Blossoms

Peanut Blossoms

This is a wonderful recipe from my sister, Kathryn. The original recipe was invented by Freda Smith of Gibsonburg, Ohio for the 1957 Pillsbury Bake-Off.


* Butter makes it more flavorful.


  1. Combine all ingredients except candy in a large mixer bowl. Mix on lowest speed of mixer until dough forms. Shape dough into balls, using a rounded teaspoonful for each. Roll balls in sugar; place on ungreased cookie sheets.
  2. Bake at 375 degrees F for 10 to 12 minutes.
  3. Top each cookie immediately with a candy kiss. Press down firmly so cookie cracks around the edge.
