No Christmas is complete without Peanut Butter Blossoms!

I made a full recipe for this because who doesn't like peanut butter blossoms?  I modified the recipe as normal.  I cut back on the sugar and added honey.  I also used some milk chocolate kisses and some dark chocolate kisses.

This is my grandmother Stella Field's recipe (for the most part)
Sift: 1 3/4 cup flour, 1 teaspoon soda & 1/2 teaspoon salt.  Okay, I have never done that sifting thing and these ingredients are always added at the end.

mix the flour in well
 Don't forget the 1 3/4 cups of flour.  I thought it was too sticky so I added another 1/4 cup flour.

Scoop 1 teaspoon balls of dough
 This is a definite splurge of sugar.  You need to roll the balls in a small bowl of sugar.

Bake them at 375 degrees for 10 minutes.  Remove and quickly top with chocolate kisses.  (I used both milk chocolate and dark chocolate.) As kids, mom used to buy brach's stars to top the cookies.

 Press firmly until the cookie cracks. Return to the oven for 2-5 minutes until the chocolate melts.

Yeah, try not to grab one while it cools!
