I know you’re confused why I’m sharing another Secret Recipe Club post this month, but we decided it would be fun to do a cookie carnival. Just like regular reveal days for the SRC, I received an assignment, but this time I had to pick only a cookie recipe from Fantastical Sharing.
Sarah runs the SRC, along with her blog, her two (soon to be three) kids and everything else that comes with life as a military wife. Sarah and I both started our blogs the same way – sharing our recipes with friends and family and tackling the continuously growing pile of recipes we’ve been saving. Definitely check out all the recipes Sarah has posted – you’ll get so many great ideas for new meals to make.
So after looking through cookie recipes, I decided on the traditional peanut butter blossoms, but with a twist. The only reason there’s a little twist is because we’re almost out of peanut butter (which is a tragedy if that happens!), so I made a substitution and used Biscoff.
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup Biscoff cookie spread
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp baking soda
2 Tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 3/4 cup flour
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line two baking sheets with parchment paper, set aside. In a small bowl, place 1/4 cup sugar.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the shortening and Biscoff. Add in the remaining 1/2 cup sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, and baking soda, Mix well and then add in the egg, milk and vanilla. Slowly mix in the flour until the batter forms.
Using a tablespoon scoop, scoop out small balls of dough. Roll the dough into the 1/4 cup sugar and place 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until the cookies are lightly golden brown. Remove the oven and immediately place an unwrapped Hershey kiss in the center of the cookie. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to completely cool.
