The classic peanut butter blossoms cookie recipe with a Christmas spin!
Hershey’s kisses look so similar to Santa’s hat that I absolutely had to put a Christmas spin on the classic peanut butter blossoms cookie recipe. If you’re not familiar with the classic recipe, it's a peanut butter cookie with a milk chocolate Hershey kiss pushed into the top. For my Santa hat spin, we’re using white chocolate Hershey kisses and some red icing to really get us into the Christmas spirit!

In a large bowl, beat the granulated sugar, brown sugar, peanut butter, butter, and egg together using an electric hand mixer or your stand mixer. Beat on medium speed until well blended.
Add the flour, baking soda, and baking powder to the bowl and mix until dough starts to form.
Assemble: Using a spoon and your hands, roll the dough into 1-inch balls. Place each cookie dough ball 2-inches apart on a baking sheet.
