Hershey Kiss Cookies
Happy February friends! I hope you are all well. Who out there loves Hershey’s KISSES? I do!! Typically, I don’t like my chocolate plain, but sometimes, a simple Hershey’s KISS is just sooo good to me. You know what makes them even better?? Putting them on top of a peanut butter cookie! That’s what today’s recipe is – Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies (aka Hershey Kiss Cookies). We’ve been making these (along with our Peanut Butter Cup Cookies) for as long as I can remember, and we wanted to share our favorite recipe for them today.
We obviously love cookies in the Luna family, and with Valentine’s around the corner, we thought sharing this sweet recipe would be perfect. Because, how often can you make delicious cookies that include KISSES?!
Peanut Butter Hershey Kiss Cookies
It’s hard not to love the peanut butter and chocolate combo in these cookies, but we especially love that they are so simple too! Here is how to make them…
- In a large bowl, beat both sugars, peanut butter, butter, and egg, until well blended. Stir in flour, baking soda and baking powder until dough forms.
- Shape dough into 1-inch balls; roll in additional granulated sugar. Place on ungreased cookie sheets, about 2 inches apart.
- Bake at 375 for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Immediately press 1 kiss in the center of each cookie.
- Remove from cookie sheets to cooling rack.
The recipe we have used for years come straight from the Betty Crocker website, and that Betty knows her stuff! Both butter or margarine work with this recipe, but we like to use butter. The peanut butter cookie is super soft and pairs perfectly with the chocolate kiss. Be unique and send kisses a different way to your loved ones this Valentine’s Day.
