  • 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°F for 8-10 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.



  • STORE. Peanut butter kiss cookies will stay fresh in an airtight container at room temperature for about 5 days. Keeping a slice of bread in the container will help them stay fresh longer.
  • FREEZE. Cool cookies then place them in an airtight container and freeze for up to 6 months.
  • Freeze cookie dough. Place dough balls on a cookie sheet to flash-freeze (about 2 hours or until the outside has become frozen). Place balls in an airtight freezer-safe container for 4-6 months.
    • To bake. Remove the desired number of dough balls. Allow to thaw on a cookie sheet. Bake according to the recipe and top with a Hershey Kiss.
