Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies

I don’t know what could be more comforting than the combination of chocolate and peanut butter.  Those two delicious flavors go together so well.

These cookies are the easiest, quickest way to get this delectable mix of flavors (well, outside of getting a spoonful of peanut butter and just eating the kiss right out of the package).  Believe me, though, you WANT to try these cookies.  They are so yummy.

My mom used to make these for me a lot, because growing up they were my favorite cookies.  Now I’m all nostalgic…

Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies

Prep: 20 minutes.  Bake: 10 minutes + cooling

In a large bowl, cream peanut butter and sugar.  Add the egg and vanilla, beat until blended.

Roll into 1-1/4″ balls.  Place two inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until tops are slightly cracked.  Immediately press the chocolate kisses into the center of each cookie. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.

Easiest Peanut Butter Cookies

Last night after dinner I got bored.  I didn’t have any homework or anything to do, so I decided to whip up a batch of peanut butter cookies.

Anyone can make peanut butter cookies.  They are so simple.  It took about 15 minutes from start to finish (including cleaning up).  Plus with only 3 very common household ingredients, they can be made without a special trip to the grocery store.

My mom used to make these all the time.  They probably contributed strongly to my obsession with peanut butter.

I really didn’t mind that the whole house smelled like peanut butter after these were baked either! 😉
