What is so great about these classic peanut butter blossom cookies…besides being soft, chewy and delicious, is that they’re made with only 3 ingredients before being topped with Hershey’s caramel kisses.

They are definitely a “less-is-more” tasting cookie when it comes to the number of ingredients it takes to make them compared to how rich and flavorful these cookies are.

The trick to making these cookies soft and chewy is not to overbake them or they’ll be on the dry side.

They’re best when baked just long enough for the bottom of the cookies to turn a golden color while the middle of the cookies are still soft.

I love how pretty these cookies look on a plate for the holidays especially when a few candy kisses in colorful foil wrappers are added for decoration.

Peanut butter blossoms add such a festive look when added to a plate of assorted holiday cookies too.

Although these cookies are a classic favorite for the holidays, they of course taste wonderful any time of the year.

Lay each ball of dough spaced apart, on an ungreased cookie sheet.

TIP – If using a half sheet-size cookie pan (18 x 13 inches), 18 balls of dough should fit per pan.

Bake in a preheated oven.

TIP – If using one cookie sheet, it will take 3 batches to bake all of the cookies.

While the cookies are in the oven, unwrap the candy kisses.

TIP – An option is to unwrap just enough for each batch in case it turns out that less than a total of 54 (18 x 3 batches) cookies are made.

Bake just long enough for the bottom of the cookies to turn a golden color, while the middle of the cookies are still soft (about 15 minutes).

TIP – Be careful not to let the cookies bake too long (brown around the outside edges) or they’ll be on the dry side.

Right after removing the cookies from the oven (while they’re warm and still on the cookie sheet), gently push a candy kiss slightly into the top of each cookie.
