Peanut Butter Blossoms
Recipe Created By: Brick Head BBQ
- 36 Hershey’s Kisses Milk Chocolate
- ½ Cup of shortening
- ¾ of Creamy Peanut Butter
- 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1 Egg
- 2 tablespoons of whole milk
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 1 ½ cups of all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt granulated sugar
Get the smoker up to 375º.
Beat shortening and peanut butter in a large bowl. Add 1/3 cup granulated sugar and brown sugar; beat until fluffy. Add egg, milk and vanilla; beat well. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into mixture.
Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Roll in a bowl of sugar. Place on a greased cookie sheet (no grill marks on these cookies)
Put on the top rack of the drum smoker for 8-10 minutes. Check during that time, you want to make sure it is cooking evenly. If not, rotate the cookie sheet and cook a total time of 11-13 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately after removing it from the drum, place a Hershey’s Kiss into the center of each cookie. Remove the cookies from the cookie sheet and place on a cooling rack. Let the cookies cool completely before eating.
All I can say, is WOW! They were better than cookies cooked in the oven. Oh yeah, and do not put any wood in the fire box!
