Christmas Kiss Blossoms (without peanut butter)

Christmas Kiss Blossoms

Christmas Kiss Blossoms
These cookies have been a tradition in my family since I can remember. I always remember going to my Grandma Jean’s house on Christmas Eve and having some Kiss Blossoms. My husband and I make these without peanut butter as our two young sons have allergies to peanuts. I hope you enjoy these as much as we do!


  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter {softened at room temp – not melted}
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons milk


Heat oven to 350°F. Remove wrappers from candies.



Beat butter, granulated sugar, egg and vanilla in large bowl until well blended. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; add alternately with milk to butter mixture, beating until well blended.

Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in red sugar, granulated sugar, powdered sugar or a combination of any of the sugars. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.


Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned and cookie is set. Remove from oven; cool 2 to 3 minutes. Press a candy piece into center of each cookie. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. About 4 dozen cookies.
