Get these cookies away from me. For reals. These are so good! I can't think of a better way to get me off my weight watchin' plan. It's the whole peanut-buttery, milk-chocolatey kissy, slightly crispy sugary thing that gets me. Every time. I'm gonna type out this recipe for you, and then go get my workout clothes on. See ya!
Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies
makes 37 cookies
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 9 ounce package milk chocolate kisses, unwrapped
Preheat the oven to 375° F. Cream the peanut butter, sugar, butter, and brown sugar. Add the egg and vanilla. Sift the salt, baking soda and flour together. Combine with the wet mixture. Shape into balls; dip into additional white sugar.
Flatten balls with a fork. Bake 8 minutes, remove from oven and press a chocolate kiss into each cookie. Return to oven; bake another 3 minutes.
♥ We put the additional sugar in a ziploc storage bags and toss 3-4 dough balls around in there at a time.
♥ Flatten the dough balls with a fork, but not too flat! Barely flatten the cookie. Makes for a better peanut butter cookie...
♥ We keep our chocolate chips and chocolate kisses stored in the freezer...(must be a thing leftover from our Texas days) and it works well for this recipe. We unwrap the frozen kisses and plop them on the cookies. They keep their shape and don't melt.
