Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies Recipe

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

Yield: 4 dozen cookies


1/2 cup butter or shortening, room temperature
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter, room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup firmly-packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup granulated sugar
48 Hershey Kisses chocolate candies, unwrapped



Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

In a large bowl, cream butter or shortening and peanut butter until light and fluffy.  Gradually add 1/2 cup granulated sugar and brown sugar; beating until light and fluffy.  Add egg, milk, and vanilla extract; beat well.  Add flour, baking soda, and salt; stir into creamed mixture until well mixed.

Roll cookie dough into 1-inch balls; roll balls in the remaining 1/4 cup sugar.  Place balls, 2 inches apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets.

There are two popular ways to cook these cookies.  Take your pick:

Bake 8 minutes.  Remove from oven; press a chocolate kiss candy into the center of each cookie.  Return to oven and bake another 2 minutes or until cookies are light brown.  Remove from oven and remove from cookie sheet; let cookies cool on wire cooling racks.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned.  Remove from oven and immediately press a chocolate kiss into the center of each cookie (cookie will crack around edges).  Remove from cookie sheet and let cookies cool on wire cooling racks.
