The Monday Recipe Blog
This blog features Lois Elaine Mueller's recipes every Monday. Lois' heyday was in the 1950's and 1960's, and her children swear she was the best cook that ever lived. Many baby boomers will remember these mouth-watering recipes, and these dishes are just as tasty today as they were in the sixties.
Lois Elaine made many cookies in the 1960's, and Peanut Butter Blossoms were probably the family's favorite of them all!
Lois Elaine's Peanut Butter Blossoms:
Cream 1/2 c. oleo (butter or butter substitute) and 1/2 c. peanut butter. Gradually add 1/2 c. sugar and 1/2 c. firmly-packed brown sugar, creaming well.
Add 1 unbeaten egg and 1 t. vanilla extract. Beat well.
Sift and add 1 3/4 c. flour, 1 t. baking soda, 1/2 t. salt.
Shape dough into teaspoon-size balls. Roll balls in granulated sugar and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 8 minutes.
Remove from oven and place a chocolate candy kiss on top of each cookie. Press down so cookie cracks. Bake 2 to 5 minutes more until golden brown.
