Peanut Butter Blossoms

These are definitely a popular holiday cookie.  I just couldn't part from making them again this year though.  They are so yummy!  However, poor Corey doesn't like them for some reason.  I think he just needs to try them again because he loves peanut butter and loves chocolate...he's crazy!  I ended up giving a lot of them away at a cookie exchange my friend Jenn threw.  It was so much fun!
