Peanut Butter Blossoms Recipe

This easy Christmas Cookies Recipe, or peanut butter blossoms recipe, creates a taste that is no other. These peanut butter blossom cookies are loved more than any other cookies, during Christmas. It is easy to understand why they simply taste delicious.

Children love peanut butter blossoms. For this reason, we share a recipe that makes enough cookies for the whole family to enjoy. There is something undeniably adoring about peanut butter blossoms, but there is more to them than looks, they are simple to make and addictively good.

I am not able to tell you why these cookies are most popular during Christmas. Maybe it has to do with a tradition that jumped out of the blue or the love the good times the cookies remind us of. We generally make the cookies all year round, but I must admit, the demand for the cookies increases twofold over Christmas time.

I remember another special occasion when we enjoyed peanut butter blossoms. My wife's sister begged my wife to make peanut butter blossoms for their wedding celebrations. And that is how the peanut butter blossoms became a tradition, or establishment, in our family.
