Do I have to place the dough in the fridge for a bit before baking?
I have experimented quite a bit, placing the dough in the fridge keeps the cookies pillowy and they do not spread a lot. This means they are soft, chewy and flavorful.
So I highly recommend placing the dough in the fridge for about 30 minutes before rolling in the sugar.
How long do Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies keep once I bake them?
Keep cookies in an airtight container for about 4 days once baked.
Can the dough be frozen?
Unbaked blossom cookies: Prepare dough and roll into balls. Place on a baking tray in the freezer for about 1 hour. Once cookies are frozen, place in a freezer bag for up to can be frozen for up to 3 months. Defrost in the fridge overnight. Bake as directed below in the recipe.
Baked Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies: Place the finished cookies in a freezer-safe bag. They need care when placed in the freezer so the tips of the cookies do not break. I do not do this often as it's easier to freeze the uncooked dough. To defrost, place the cookies in the fridge overnight They can also defrost on the counter in about 2 hours.
Tips to make the best Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies
- Use unsalted butter, if you only have salted butter, do not add salt to the cookies.
- Be sure the butter and eggs are at room temperature so the batter blends well.
- As you cook the cookies in batches, be sure to place the uncooked dough on cooled baking trays so they don't flatten too much.
- Refrigerate the dough before rolling into balls. This will help the cookies to stay puffy.
- Be sure to check the expiration date in baking soda, baking soda can go bad. Replace old baking soda.
