Hershey Kiss Peanut Butter Cookies

Yum
Hershey Kiss Peanut Butter Cookies

Well, it is Christmas cookie week at our house. Jamie and the boys came over yesterday and started off with one of our favorite go-to cookies for the Holidays the Hershey Kiss Peanut Butter Cookie.

These cookies are actually great and fun to make any time of the year. These are known by many people as Peanut Butter Blossoms or chocolate kiss peanut butter cookies.

This time of the year you can find this recipe right on the back of the bags of  Chocolate Hershey Kisses. As for the recipe, we pretty much stick to the ingredients on the bag with the exception of, we use butter instead of shortening. Also, I've included 3 helpful tips that we always use when making these delightful treats.

Here is what we used for the Hershey Kiss Peanut Butter Cookies:

48 Hershey Kisses
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup of creamy peanut butter
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup light brown sugar (packed)
1 egg
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1-1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
More sugar for later

In a large bowl mix together the butter and peanut butter until it's blended. Add the 1/3 cups of sugar and brown sugar and continue to beat until it's fluffy. Add the egg, milk, and vanilla and continue to mix.

Now stir in the flour, baking soda, and salt mix this until you have a dough.

 Tip number 1: Set the dough in the refrigerator while you unwrap the Hershey Kisses.

Tip number 2: After unwrapping the kisses set them in the freezer while you prepare and bake the cookies.

Preparing and baking these homemade Hershey Kiss Peanut Butter Cookies:

Add about 1 or 2 cups of sugar into a bowl, roll the dough into 1 inch balls and then roll them in the sugar. We just love having the kids baking cookies with us.

Place these on a ungreased baking cookie sheet about 2 inches apart or you can use parchment paper as we did.

Ready for the oven

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and bake for 10 to 12 minutes until the cookies puff up and the bottom is a nice light brown.

Now take the Hershey Kisses out of the freezer and press one into the middle of each cookie.

 Tip number 3: Place the completed cookie sheet in the freezer for about 5 minutes.
