These cookies are amazing! In fact, we’re pretty sure that the only people who don’t love peanut butter blossoms are people who haven’t tried peanut butter blossoms. This sweet recipe has been a go-to for home bakers everywhere since it debuted at the 1957 Pillsbury Bake-Off® Contest. (In a hurry? Try our three-ingredient Quick Peanut Blossoms for an even quicker cookie.)
