Christmas Cookie Recipes: Peanut Butter Blossoms

One of my husband’s favorite cookies is the Peanut Butter Blossom. Around the holidays, it’s a must make. Although it’s an easy cookie to bake, I’m sharing my recipe because my super critical husband has approved it after other versions were tossed out. My secret is putting the unwrapped Hershey’s Kisses into the freezer; that way they stay in tact in the hot cookie base.
