4 Ingredient Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies – Tips!

We played around with the recipe quite a bit (as in we’ve had a lot of cookies lately!) Add chocolate chips to the batter or use different types of chocolate toppers for different effects.

The amount of sugar used is a matter of taste. I did a few batches with 3/4 cup of sugar instead of a full cup and still loved them. 🙂

If there’s an allergy to peanut butter in your house, then use any unsweetened nut butter. We used sunflower seed butter.

Ultimately, this was our favorite. It received kudos for the presentation. (I do believe this version looks a bit like a witch’s hat!) And, the layer of chocolate on top of the soft cookie was irresistible!

  16. Hello! Would this be able to be in the fridge or freezer and brought out to room temp and still bake fine?

  17. Sister P. Nutbutter says

    I have made these many times and they disappear quickly! Kids love making them so it was a fun project with my nieces and nephews. They are very rich, so I make them smaller than my other cookies. They can be messy, so I use a miniature muffin pan and the small paper cup liners. It keeps the crumb trail off the floor and makes storage easier, especially if you are taking them with you for a party or get together. There are so many choices for a variety of versions so kids never get tired of them. And really, what DOESN’T go with peanut butter!
