Just in time for the holidays, these peanut butter cookies are the perfect treat for your holiday get togethers. Peanut butter and chocolate are always a great combo, so why not add a few ingredients and bake them together into a delicious treat? For this recipe, I use Hershey’s Kisses in the center of the cookie, but you can use other types of chocolate if you would like. For additional flavor, you can add more sugar or butter to the mixture to make it more flavorful.

½ cup sugar (more if desired)

½ cup brown sugar

1 cup creamy peanut butter

1 cup butter or margarine (melted)

1 egg

1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

¾ tsp baking soda

½ tsp baking powder

Hershey Kisses (1 bag)


Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl, beat the granulated sugar, the brown sugar, peanut butter, butter and egg with an electric mixer on medium speed, or mix with spoon, until well blended.

Stir in the flour, baking soda and baking powder until the dough forms.

Take a piece of the dough and make round balls in your hand. Roll some additional sugar on the dough.

On an ungreased cookie sheet place dough about 2 inches apart. If you want, you can put a piece of wax paper on the cookie sheet.

Bake the cookies for approximately 8 to 10 minutes or until the edges are light golden brown.

When the cookies are done cooking, immediately press 1 milk chocolate kiss in center of each cookie. You want to do this as soon as they come out of the oven.

Remove the cookies from the tray and let them cool for about 5 to 10 minutes on a cookie rack.

Serve and enjoy.

Prep time: 60 minutes

Serves: About 30 to 40 cookies
