Week Four of Christmas Cookies: Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies... Santa's Favorite

We are chocolate and peanut butter lovers in our house!  These cookies have been my absolute favorite since I was a child - they are the softest, most wonderful bite of chocolate and peanut butter.  I also add Reese's minis on top of some of them for an extra peanut butter "kick."  The other "kiss" cookies with 4 or 5 ingredients can't even hold a candle to these amazing cookies!  I don't think this batch will make it long enough to see Santa ;)


Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies
(Recipe found a long time ago - can't remember where)
Makes about 30 cookies

1 3/4 c. flour
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. peanut butter
1 egg
2 tbsp. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
extra granulated sugar
package of Hershey Kisses or Reese's Miniatures

1.  Mix together flour, both types of sugar, baking soda, and salt.
2.  Melt the butter in a microwavable bowl.  Add it to the flour mixture.
3.  Add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl and mix well (you may have to use your hands).
4.  Roll the mixture into small, 1-2 inch balls.  Roll the dough balls in granulated sugar.
5.  Place the cookies on a pan lined with parchment paper and bake on 350 degrees for 10-11 minutes.
6.  When you take the cookies out of the oven, press the chocolates into the center.  Then, allow the cookies to cool before storing.
