You probably already have the ingredients in your pantry. The only thing you might need to buy are the Hershey Kisses, but let’s face it – you were probably going to buy some anyway. 😉
What you’ll need to create these Peanut Butter Cookies with Hershey Kisses:
I always joke that I’m not much of a baker. Generally, I prefer to use my crock pot as I can’t mess up a recipe. All you have to do is through in the ingredients and voila, dinner is done! This is definitely my favorite way to cook.
However, I do enjoy creating delicious desserts with my kids and they love to bake! So here I am learning to bake more and more and learning to love it as well!
My mom bought me a stand alone Kitchen-aid Mixer a few years back for Christmas and I do love it so much! It makes creating delicious cookies and cakes easier to do.
Usually, I use my stand up mixer when I create cookies but you definitely don’t have to have one for this recipe. I have this Kitchen-aid hand held mixer as well and it work great.
Either way, you will need some sort of mixer for this recipe so just use your favorite one!
The only other thing that you have to have for this recipe is baking sheets. I am currently use these and I love them. They are large enough to create recipes for my family and easy to clean as well.
Also I have used these silicone mats as well and enjoy how they make clean up a breeze. They are optional but I have liked using them when making cookies.
What is needed to create this peanut butter kiss cookies recipe?
- Peanut Butter
- Light Golden Brown Sugar
- 1 Egg
- Baking Soda
- 24 Hershey Kisses (unwrapped)
Like I said before, if you are baker you probably already have all these ingredients in your pantry. All you need are some delicious Hershey Kisses and then you’re ready to create this recipe.
How to make Peanut Butter Cookies with Hershey Kisses:
First preheat your oven to 350. Some recipes request that you preheat oven to 375 but I find that they are less likely to dry out when they are baked at the lower temperature.
Then cream together the sugar, brown sugar, butter and peanut butter until smooth.
Next add egg and vanilla and beat together. Then whisk together flour, baking soda and salt in a separate bowl.
After those ingredients are thoroughly combined, slowly add dry ingredients to the creamed mixture, beating until incorporated.
Next roll the dough into 24 1″ balls and place them on baking sheets several inches apart. After you have rolled the dough, then gently make an indentation in the center of each cookie just like in the photo below.
Then bake them in the preheated oven for 12-14 minutes. After this cooking time, place a Hershey Kiss in the center of each cookie.
Then move the cookies to a cooling rack at room temperature and allow for them to cool completely which usually takes around 30 minutes.
After they have cooled, I move the cookies to an air tight container so we can can enjoy them together. To be honest, they usually don’t last long there as my family always devours these cookies quickly!
Can you freezer leftover cookies?
When I bake over the holidays, I usually intentionally make extras so I can freeze them and my family can enjoy cookies all throughout the year!
I get a lot of questions about what can be frozen and what cannot because I’m an avid freezer cooker and leftover cookies can definitely be frozen! I actually wrote an entire post about freezing leftover cookies that you can check out here.
The only difference for this cookies is that I would let them defrost at room temperature instead of baking them so that the milk chocolate kisses do not melt.
