Mini Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies

These mini cookies are a great snack and so cute for the holidays--plus, no unwrapping dozens of candies before you make them!

Ingredients: Unsalted Butter, Granulated Sugar and Light Brown Sugar, Peanut Butter, All-Purpose Flour, Baking Soda, Salt, Milk Chocolate Chips.

I use a tiny 1/2 tablespoon scoop (or substitute a measuring spoon).  Form the scoops into round balls, roll them in granulated sugar, and arrange on a baking sheet.

Bake. Place three chocolate chips in the center of each cookie immediately after they come out of the oven.

Do I need to chill the dough before baking?  Chilling is optional, but it does make scooping and shaping the dough a bit easier!

How small are the cookies?  These cookies measure about 1.5″ in diameter.

Why bother with mini cookies?  They are just so darn cute! They make great cookies for a holiday platter or lunchbox.
