Hi Meg, You were right the first time on the flour, it should be 3 1/2 cups

To Jacks who doesn't know how to double 1 3/4. You were right the first time. It should be 3 1/2. I love these cookies. The most time consuming part is unwrapping the kisses. LOL.

We always made this but, after firmly inserting the Hershey kiss we put it back in the oven for 1 - 2 minutes max. Pull out as soon as you see a hint of bubbles on the surface of the kiss or the tip darkens. It changes the texture of the kiss in a very pleasing way. Try it. (If you leave the kiss in too long the chocolate can become grainy. Still tastes good.)

I have used this recipe for years and they always come out great but you have to use quality butter (LOL), eggs and flour - it makes a difference and I've been baking for a long time use this recipe along with my eastern European ones,,,you will always find LOL in my refrigerator no matter what time of the year it is - happy holidays

Hi Adele, you can definitely freeze the cookies! Make sure they are sealed up in a plastic food bag or airtight container. They will keep in the freezer for up to 2 months in advance. When you are ready to serve, remove them from the freezer and let them come to room temperature. Happy baking!

Best recipe. When we lived in England we couldn't find kisses so we used rolos. Now we only make them with Rolos instead of Hershey Kisses and they are amazing. Everyone raves about them.

This is the best pb blossom recipe. I am always asked to make these for bake sales and around the holidays. I do think it's important to use a good quality peanut butter, you wouldn't believe the difference in taste.

I have found if you don't refrigerate before hand they are to soft and they cook flat. Still taste good though. Just remember to put the dough in the fridge for awhile.

This is the best recipe ever. Third time making it and i always douvble everything, as far as the flour i use 2 1/2 cups and works great. My daughter loves helping with rolling them in sugar and , putting the kisses on. Thank You and God Bless...

I have never had a bad batch with this recipe. They always turn out light and fluffy, and people at work beg me to bring more. A couple things I do differently-I always bake at 350 degrees instead of 375. I do this for every kind of cookie, 25 degrees less than what the recipe calls for. If you guys have flat cookies, the dough is probably too warm. Refrigerate before rolling into balls or use a cookie scoop to get the right amount, and then quickly roll into balls. Great recipe.

These cookies turn out perfectly every time! I sometimes use dark chocolate kisses, which is a great variation.

Followed recipe exactly...chilled dough for a short time before rolling onto balls...PERFECTION!

This gets a 4 star because it is rather flat, not puffy like the picture. I had to find this recipe online also, since I misplaced my Christmas recipes in my move, and used this Land O'Lakes one here. The ones I make are fluffier, like the picture here. I am sure I would not have used shortening so I don't know what's different about this recipe from mine. However they are tasty. But I want them to taste AND look great.

Hi Jody, crunchy peanut butter will change the texture of the cookie, but it should work just fine. Happy baking!

my wife likes to make these cookies topless. I always say, nothing goes better with peanut butter cookies than milk! Ah, the holidays!

the cookies turned out a bit flat. In the past when I have made peanut butter blossoms they are fat and prettier....not sure what recipe used previously or the difference. The flavor was good.
