It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmasssss! All throughout my house! But the prettiest sight to see is the peanut butter cookies in my kitchen! I recently made sugar cookies but Joe is not a fan of them so I asked him which he liked best and he said “Peanutbutter, with Hershey kisses.” So what did I make today?
Peanut butter cookies with Kisses in them!
So, let’s have a little baking lesson!
First, get out your Pyrex. For this recipe, I used my large Terra bowl and small Amish Butterprint dish.
Cream in a large bowl: 1 cup of peanut butter, 1 cup brown sugar, 2 eggs, 1 cup white sugar.
The recipe doesn’t say to melt/soften the butter, but I do because I don’t have a mixer that will cream the butter easily for me. Use a cup of butter (two sticks)
After all that, add in 2 ½ cups of all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1 ½ teaspoon of baking soda, and ½ teaspoon salt. Stir until well blended. Get out your baking sheets and DO NOT grease them…the cookies are greasy enough that they’ll pop right off the rack.
Roll the dough into small balls and bake at 375 for about 10 minutes. Once baked, I allowed to cool for about two minutes because if you place the Kisses in them too soon, they’ll melt.
To help me quickly place the Kisses in the cookies, Joe unwrapped the candies and placed them into my small Friendship Cinderella bowl.
It worked out GREAT! I was plopping them down about as quickly as Joe could unwrap them.
It was really a fun afternoon, since I had never made peanut butter cookies…though they’re probably the easiest cookies to make. Quick, easy, and-hey! They’re already half gone. Time to go have a talk with a cookie hoarded.
