Peanut Blossoms

This recipe was submitted by senior Tori Moss, who said this recipe holds importance to her because her grandmother would always enlist her and her cousins for help to make these treats every year. She said each kid would have their own job, and the family would all work together to create a bunch of the peanut blossoms to share with the rest of the family.
