WHY MAKE THIS RECIPE?
Tender, perfect Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies (aka Peanut Butter Blossoms) are a classic holiday or any-time dessert. Super easy to make, these are the softest, chewiest cookies you’ll make! The Hershey’s Kiss pressed into the center MAKES the cookie!
-1/2 c salted butter -1/2 c sugar -1/2 c brown sugar -1 egg -1 tsp vanilla extract -1/2 c creamy peanut butter -1 1/2 c flour -1 tsp baking soda -1 tsp corn starch - 1 tsp salt -1/2 c sugar (for rolling) -24 Hershey Kisses chocolates
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
Using a stand mixer, combine the butter, granulated and brown sugars, egg and vanilla and beat until creamy and free of lumps. Add the peanut butter and mix until just combined.
In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, corn starch and salt. Mix well. Gradually add to the butter mixture and beat on medium speed until just combined.
Pour the 1/2 cup granulated sugar into a small bowl.
Scoop out tablespoon-size portions of batter and roll into balls. Roll the balls in the sugar and place 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets.
Bake in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes, or until edges are golden brown.
Remove from oven and gently but firmly press one chocolate candy into the center of each cookie. Allow to cool completely.
Roll the balls of dough in granulated sugar or opt for a chunkier sugar texture and use turbinado sugar instead.
