Pin a Day: Peanut Butter S'more Blossoms

On Wednesdays, we bake.  I love to bake and share with my friends at Whitestone for trivia.  This week I made Peanut Butter S'more Blossoms.   This is basically a twist on the traditional peanut butter blossoms or as we call them, Peanut Butter Ta Tas.  I started by gathering up my ingredients and making sure that Lola was fully occupied, as I didn't want her adding to the recipe.  First, I mixed peanut butter, butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until it was nice and smooth.  I added in the vanilla, egg, milk, salt, and baking powder.  Finally, I mixed in the flour, a bit at a time, allowing the dough to take shape.  I used my scoop to shape the dough into balls and rolled them in sugar.  I placed them on 2 baking sheets and cooked them for 7 minutes.  After the came out of the oven, I used the end of a baking spoon to carefully poke a hole in each cookie.  Then, I quickly added a mini marshmallow and mini Reese's cup to each cookie.  I allowed them to cool completely before moving them to my storage containers.  The recipe made 4 dozen cookies so I had plenty for my beer tenders, friends, and some to keep at home.  I love all things S'mores so these were delightful.  They tasted great with darker beers and would also pair nicely with milk or coffee.  I also liked the small size, making them a perfect snack.  These were easy to make and tasty, so they will definitely be filed among the favorites in my recipe book!
