Was anyone else OBSESSED with peanut butter blossoms growing up? There’s just something about biting into that crunchy chocolate on top of a chewy, sugary peanut butter cookie.

Ingredients

You’ll need the following ingredients for the peanut butter cookies:

  • Vegetable shortening
  • Peanut butter
  • Brown sugar
  • Sugar
  • Vanilla (this is the brand we use – it’s a good deal!)
  • Flour, salt, & baking soda

And you’ll need just two ingredients for the chocolate dollops:

  • Chocolate chips (these are vegan!)
  • Coconut oil

That’s it! They’re so easy and taste just like the cookies we all grew up eating, if not better.

How to

To get that classic peanut butter blossom feel, you just press into the cookies with a 1 teaspoon measuring spoon when they come out of the oven, then spoon in dollops of melted chocolate!

So easy and so tasty!

    I was so excited to find this recipe, because Kiss Cookies are as much a part of Christmas in my family as the tree! This is my first Christmas vegan, too. These came out great! I was a little worried when the dough was a bit crumbly, but the cookies held together. They’re crunchy on the outside and a little chewy on the inside and taste very similar to the original, perhaps a little less sweet, but I used a lot of chocolate (I ended up needing to melt more after the initial 1 cup), so that evened them out. And it makes a lot of cookies, too. Great recipe!
