If you like the idea of Peanut Blossoms but want to make something more unusual, here’s a variation.
To make a Tex Mex Peanut Blossom, use your favorite Peanut Blossom recipe, but roll the dough balls in cinnamon sugar instead of regular sugar and use caramel filled Hershey’s Kisses instead of a plain milk chocolate Kisses.
To take it a step further (and add a little heat!), add about 1/2 teaspoon of ground chipotle to the dough recipe. If putting chipotle in peanut butter cookie dough sounds a too strange for your tastes, make a couple of test cookies by leaving the pepper out of the batter and incorporating a tiny pinch of it into a few balls. It’s a pretty good combo.
