Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies
I remember growing up and helping my mom unwrap all the Hershey’s Kisses for a big batch of Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies every Christmas.
I couldn’t wait until baking day when I would be able to eat one of these little bites of Christmas Cookie heaven right from the oven after adding on the Hershey’s Kiss.
How to Make Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies
- Start with a simple peanut butter cookie dough that is made with shortening. (I use butter flavored Crisco sticks for baking)
- Form cookie dough balls using a medium scoop and then roll the peanut butter cookie dough in sugar before placing them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silpat.
- Next, bake the cookies until LIGHTLY browned. Once out of the oven, immediately press an unwrapped Hershey’s Kiss into the top of each cookie, pressing down slightly.
- Let cool slightly and remove from the cookie sheet onto a wire rack.
- Try to let them cool completely before eating. Or sneak a few for good measure!
