He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart;
he gently leads those that have young

{Peanut Butter Blossoms}

 Peanut Butter Blossoms {2 Ways}
makes about 3 dozen
What You'll Need:
1/2 c sugar                                            
1/2 c brown sugar
1/2 c butter or shortening
1 egg
2 T milk
1 t vanilla extract
1/2 c peanut butter {all natural and regular both work}
1 3/4 c all purpose flour
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1/4 c sugar {optional}
Hershey Kisses or Reese's Peanut Butter Mini Cups

What To Do:
Cream butter and sugars. Add egg, milk and vanilla. Mix in peanut butter. Mix dry ingredients and add to the creamed mixture. Roll dough into 1 1/2" balls and then roll balls in granulated sugar {optional} to coat.
For Hershey Kiss Blossoms.... place balls onto ungreased cookie sheet  and bake for 8 minutes. {You can use this time to unwrap Hershey Kisses.} Remove from oven and push a single Kiss into the center of each cookie. Return to the oven for another 3 minutes.

For Reese's Cup Blossoms... place rolled balls into tassi pan and bake for 10 minutes. {You can use this time to unwrap Reese's Cups}Remove from oven and immediately push a single Reese's Cup into the center of each cookie. Allow cookies to remain in pan for a few minutes to set. I use a butter knife to gently lever them out.  

My mother-in-law, the baker, shared these beauties with me. 
They're delicious and thankfully quick and easy... my favorite!
