Peanut Butter Easter Egg Cookies

These little peanut butter blossoms are some of the best things you will ever taste (assuming you love peanut butter)! Throw some chocolate eggs on top and you have yourself a festive batch of easter treats!

Peanut Butter Easter Eggs

*This recipe makes a very large batch. Its supposed to be for 48 cookies, I usually half it!

1 cup butter softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 large eggs
4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup granulated sugar for rolling
2 bags of Cadbury Mini Eggs

  • In a mixing bowl, cream the butter, peanut butter and sugars. Add vanilla and mix. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking soda and salt. Add to mixture in mixing bowl and mix until well combined.
  • Roll the dough into 1" balls and place onto a non-stick baking mat. Roll each ball in sugar gently. 
  • Refrigerate the cookies for 30 minutes.
  • Bake the cookies at 375 degrees for about 8-9 minutes. If you like cookies to be soft, be sure not to overbake them. They shouldn't be browned at all.
  • As soon as the cookies come out of the oven, press the kisses into the center of the cookie. 
  • Allow the cookies to cool for about 3 minutes on the pan, then move to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Store the cookies in an airtight container.
