Hospitality Begins at Home

Edie at Life in Grace posted 31 Days to a Heart of Hospitality.  You can read all her posts here.
One of the thoughts she shared is hospitality should begin at home.    We should serve our families first.
One of my favorite ways to serve my family is baking for them.  Of course, desserts are always a favorite here. Lately, hubby had been dropping some hints for these delicious peanut blossoms.  So I promptly got to
baking.  I follow the recipe from the Land o Lakes site because I prefer to make the cookies with real butter instead of shortening.


  • 1/2 CUP

  • 1/2 CUP

    firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 CUP

    Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
  • 1/2 CUP

    peanut butter
  • 1

    Land O Lakes® All-Natural Egg

    vanilla extract
  • 1/4 TEASPOON

  • 1 3/4 CUPS

    all-purpose flour

    baking soda
  • 1/4 CUP

  • 48

    milk chocolate candy kisses, unwrapped

    Heat oven to 375°F. Combine 1/2 cup sugar, brown sugar, butter and peanut butter in large bowl. Beat at medium speed until light and fluffy. Add egg, vanilla and salt; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour and baking soda. Continue beating, scraping bowl often, until well mixed.

    Shape dough into 1-inch balls. (If dough is too soft, refrigerate 30 to 60 minutes.) Roll balls in 1/4 cup sugar. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.

    Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until very lightly golden brown. Immediately press 1 chocolate kiss in center of each cookie. Remove from cookie sheets; cool completely on wire racks.

    Everyone loves Pinterest and I am no exception.  I probably spend way too much time on there.  But some good does come of it.  Especially when I actually prepare one of the many recipes I've pinned.
  • This is one of the easiest and tastiest recipes I've pinned.  You can find it at the Southern Plate.  Obviously, southerners know what they're doing when it comes to deliciousness.  This has quickly become one of our favorites.  I have made them a couple of times.  These fabulous donuts are made from biscuits.  Needless to say, anything fried then dipped in butter and sugar is going to quickly become a number one pick.  I followed the recipe except I only use sugar to coat mine instead of cinnamon sugar, and dip them in butter instead of margarine. They taste like fried doughboys that are so very popular in our area.  
They are a mouth watering treat that takes nearly no time at all to make.  Everyone needs to try this at least one.  You will want to make them all the time.  They are perfect for these cool fall mornings with a hot latte.
You must let me know if you try these.

Linking to these parties.
