peanut butter blossoms

We are having a lot of fun this year crafting, cooking, and decorating the house.  Among the many things we did this weekend was to bake our first batch of Christmas cookies.

Hershey’s peanut butter blossoms were a holiday standard in our house.  My mom would have my brother and I unwrap the Kisses.  We loved it as kids, but now as a mom myself, I realized why she had us do it – it’s a pain the butt to unwrap all those!  So in keeping with tradition, I had the girls do the honor of unwrapping.  Blythe mostly tried to eat the chocolates, but they did a good job, and didn’t put any in their mouths aside from the one I let them have.

Unwrapping Kisses

I couldn’t resist lining the girls up for this picture.  My grandmother made the girls several kid-sized Christmas aprons last year, and they were extremely excited to pull them out and wear them this year.

I made the dough balls, and the girls rolled them in sugar.  Once they were out of the oven, the girls (minus Blythe) pressed the kisses into the cookies.

I’m so glad to be passing this tradition on the girls!
