Peanut Butter Chocolate Kiss Cookies

These are a fun quick little cookie to whip up for a special occasion. I love peanut butter cookies and a little kiss on top makes these perfect. My favorite recipe for these you can find on the back of your bag of Hershey's Kisses. Seriously, if you want a peanut butter chocolate fix today these can be ready in no time. Just make sure you give some away because I bet you can't stop at one! :)

Peanut Butter Chocolate Kiss Cookies
  • 48 HERSHEY'S KISSES Brand Milk Chocolates

  • 1/2 cup shortening

  • 3/4 cup Creamy Peanut Butter

  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar

  • 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar

  • 1 egg

  • 2 tablespoons milk

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • Granulated sugar

    Heat oven to 375°F. Remove wrappers from chocolates. This part is perfect for the kiddos.

    Beat shortening and peanut butter in large bowl until well blended. Add 1/3 cup granulated sugar and brown sugar; beat until fluffy. Add egg, milk and vanilla; beat well. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into peanut butter mixture.

    Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in granulated sugar; place on ungreased cookie sheet.

    Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Immediately press a chocolate into the center of each
    cookie; cookie will crack around edges. You have to do this quickly. If you let the cookies set up then they will break when you try and put your Kiss in. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.

    Makes about 4 dozen cookies.

    1. Yum! I've always loved these. Thanks for the recipe!

    2. Brian LOVED these (minus the kiss part). He thought they were the perfect peanut butter cookie - soft and chewy. I just wish I could make them for him! Maybe I'll make them anyway, just to make him drool and to test his will power!

      ***Did you eat them, even though you aren't eating candy? ;o)
