Peanut Blossom Cookies

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I love Peanut Butter! So naturally, one of my favorite Christmas cookies is Peanut Blossoms. If you are a fan of PB and/or chocolate I am quite positive you will enjoy these little treats, as well. Below is the Gourmet Gab family recipe for Peanut Blossoms. Happy Baking!
