Not sure what they are called but during my HC days I loved these. Anyone know what i'm talking about? if so is there a LC version?

i think they are called peanut butter blossoms they are a peanut butter batter rolled up backed and once baked u put a hershy kiss on the top.......

Hi

I'd never heard of your version, so I found a recipe of it...looks totally do-able, LC-wise....just need a lot of subbing of ingredients.
Kinda in a hurry right now, but perhaps someone will be along soon to offer suggestions for the subs...


PEANUT BUTTER BLOSSOMS

1 c. sugar
1 c. butter
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. salt
2 (10 oz. pkg.) Hershey Kisses
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. creamy peanut butter
1/4 c. milk
3 1/2 c. flour
2 tsp. baking soda

Mix all ingredients above except Kisses. Shape in medium size balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes, place 1 kiss on each blossom

you know I had a brain lapse here, they used to make them, Brach's brand and I even got some when they marked them down, so they have probably been discontinued, I may go look for a website on them, will post if I find out any good info

I bought some sugarfree milk, dark, and white chocolate baking wafers online - they're a little bigger around than a Hershey's kiss and flatter, but they would work I'm sure. Since I can't post the website, try googling sugarfree baking chocolate and see what you scare up! Sometimes you have to use sugar free instead of all one word....

Charski,

Are you talking about Wilbur's? I contacted them and found out their sugar free chocolate disks have transfats.

Kiss Cookies Sorta
yield 2 dozen

1 cup carbquik
1/2 t. baking soda
1/4 t. salt
1 T. not/Sugar
1/8 cup diabeti sweet brown

1/4 cup crisco green
1/4 cup lc creamy peanut butter
1 egg
1 T. heavy cream
1/2 t. vanilla
1/8 t. sweetzfree

1 T. diabeti sweet white(for coating)

3 hershey's 1 carb bars

In large mixer bowl, stir carbquik, soda, salt, not/Sugar, and diabeti sweet brown together. Add remaining ingredients except chocolate and mix at medium speed until well combined, scraping bowl occasionally. Chill dough 30 mins.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Roll small amounts of dough into 1 inch balls and then roll in diabeti sweet white to coat.
Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 12 minutes or until light brown.
Remove from oven and immediately press chocolate into the center of each cookie.

Although very tasty, they were more crumbly when warm than I remember the HC version being.

It is crisco in the green can. They advertise it as not having any trans fats in it.

No, just somebody who enjoys cooking and baking and thinks there should be ways to make the things we like to eat without the carbs.

The only way i know to answer that question is to say my DW said to me, "boy these taste and feel just like HC Kiss cookie". They are not hard or soft.

Kevin..once again I am bumping a old thread that I want to try to make a good PB cookie and freeze it to use on my cookie trays...LOL Wonder if you could cut these out like a regular cookie with cookie cutters...

As a rule, most any kind of chilled cookie dough can be rolled and cut with cutters but I didn't try it. I am guessing it will work though. Personally I like the roll and slice method myself.

Hmmm, could you use the recipe (sure you could) for the 3 ing. p.butter cookies:


1 egg
1 cup of P.Butter (free of sugar)
1 cup of a.f. Sweetner (Splenda, Sweet/Low, Stevia)


I think Charski puts some almond flour in hers to give it a bit of "hold together"

then after done, stick on you s.f. chocolate chip, sprink w/splenda


I would dearly love to try Kevins recipe, but I can't afford to purchase Carbquik right now, so I think this would work.
