Peanut Butter Kisses

Here's the recipe for the cookies. They were VERY good! I ate so many that I woke up in the middle of the night dying for a drink of water:) Sounds like I haven't learned a thing since I was nine.
The recipe was on the back of the package of Hershey's Kisses.
48 Hershey Kisses
1/2 C Shortening (I used butter)
3/4 C Creamy Peanut Butter
1/3 C Granulated Sugar
1/3 C Brown Sugar
1 egg
2 T milk
1 t Vanilla Extract
1 1/2 C All Purpose Flour
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
Granulated Sugar
Directions: 1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Remove wrappers from chocolate. 2. Beat shortening (butter) and peanut butter in large bowl until well blended. Add 1/3 C granulated sugar and brown sugar; beat until fluffy. Add egg, milk and vanilla; beat well. Stir together flour, baking soda, and salt; gradually beat into peanut butter mixture. 3. Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Roll in granulated; place on ungreased cookie sheet. 4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. I baked mine 6 minutes. The first batch I did for 8 minutes and the bottoms came out dark brown. Immediately press a chocolate into the center of each cookie; cookie will crack around edges. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.


  1. That’s one of my most favorite memories ...all those peanut butter cookies (missing the chocolate kisses off the top) piled up in your garbage can. And the look on your face when confronted was priceless! LOL

  2. I have to make cookies for the school's carnival tomorrow so this post is very timely and much appreciated!!!!
