Cookie Exchange

LoveFeast's Holiday Cookie Exchange
I am linking up to LoveFeast Table's 12 Days of Christmas Cookie Exchange.  Don't you just love an old fashioned cookie exchange?  I sure do, and this virtual kind is easier and kinder to my hips.  I have a dear friend that hosts an annual cookie exchange for the ladies in her neighborhood.  They even do a cookie contest.  I gave her this recipe, which is embarassingly easy, and she won the contest that year.  You probably have had a version of this cookie, but I promise, none of them are as good as this one. 

Peanut Butter Blossoms
1 (14-ounce) can EAGLE BRAND® Sweetened Condensed Milk (NOT evaporated milk)

3/4 cup peanut butter

2 cups biscuit baking mix

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/3 cup sugar

65 solid milk chocolate candy pieces, unwrapped

1. Preheat oven to 375°F. In large bowl, beat EAGLE BRAND® and peanut butter until smooth. Add biscuit mix and vanilla; mix well.

2. Shape into 1-inch balls. Roll in sugar. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.

3. Bake 6 to 8 minutes or until lightly browned around edges (do not overbake). Immediately press chocolate candy piece in center of each cookie. Cool. Store leftovers tightly covered at room temperature.
