Peanut Butter Blossoms

Peanutbutterblossoms
 Peanut butter blossoms are one of my all time favorites.  The kids school has a serious policy of no-nuts so it isn't a cookie that I usually keep hanging around.  But, what else was I going to do during a snow storm?

2 sticks unsalted butter (room temperature)
1 cup chunky peanut butter (you can use smooth but I like the chunky)
1 cup sugar (plus extra for dipping)
1 cup light brown sugar
3 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. kosher salt
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
2 tbsp. milk ( yes )
60 unwrapped chocolate kisses

Preheat oven to 375.

Sift the flour, baking soda and salt together – set aside.  Using a mix master, mix together the butter, and both sugars and peanut butter until completely combined.  Let it go for at least a few minutes.  Add the eggs, vanilla and milk, mix again.  Add the flour over 3 times, mixing each time until combined. 

In your hand, create one inch circumference ball, dip it in sugar and coat and then put on a parchment covered baking sheet.  Bake for about 6-8 minutes until they are just golden.  Take them out, put the chocolate kiss in the center, and then put the cookies back in the oven for about 1 minute, not much more. 

Take out, cool.  Delicious!
