I always make these during Christmas and always will. I love an easy go-to cookie recipe, and this one is absolutely perfect. Who doesn’t like chocolate and peanut butter?! The recipe is on the bag of Hershey Kisses but I changed it a bit. No need to type any further… so…let’s get to baking…
What you will need:
Cookie sheet lined with parchment paper
1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons milk
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
Hershey Kisses, unwrapped
Extra granulated sugar for rolling
To make the dough:
In a large bowl (or bowl of your electric mixer), beat butter until smooth and creamy. Add peanut butter and both sugars and beat until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla until combined. Add in milk until combined. In a smaller bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt. Add to peanut butter mixture and beat until well combined.
Cover and chill the dough for about an hour.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit. Roll the dough into 1 inch balls and roll in granulated sugar.
Place on prepared cookie sheet. Bake for 8 or 9 minutes.
As soon as cookies come out of the oven, gently press a Hershey Kiss in the center of each cookie. The cookies will crack but that’s ok! It’s what gives them their unique look 🙂 Allow to cool on a wire rack. Enjoy!
