Every year during awards season, I set up pick ’em games for my girlfriends and offer up baked goods as prizes. And then, every year after the winners are picked, I end up taking months to get them their prizes.
These cookies were for Sarah, and the last of this year’s promised prizes. They also happen to my a favorite of my husband’s and he was bummed when I wouldn’t let him have more than one. I guess I’ll be making another batch soon!
Peanut Butter Kisses
1 1/2 c. all purpose flour
3/4 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1/2 c. butter, slightly softened
1 c. peanut butter
1 c. sugar
2 t. vanilla
Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
Combine flour, soda and salt with a wire whisk and set aside.
Beat butter and peanut butter. Add sugar and beat until fluffy. Add egg and vanilla. Add flour mixture and combine.
Roll dough into 1 to 1-1/2 inch balls and then roll the balls in sugar to coat. Place rolled balls on parchment paper covered baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes.
Remove from the oven and press an unwrapped Hershey’s Kisses candy into the center of each cookie.
Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
