Peanut Butter Blossoms

A lot of people have been posting about this lately, so I wasn’t going to post these even though it’s the first time I’ve ever made them. Then my mom had the great idea to roll them in red, white and green sugars to make them festive and I thought-that makes them bloggable! So here they are in their festive sugary goodness.
