peanut butter kisses

Peanut butter and chocolate. Can you think of a better combination?? It is definitely one of my favorites. Perfect mix of slightly salty and sweet. Yum. These cookies have a bunch of different names, I think Hershey's calls them peanut butter blossoms, but I've always called them peanut butter kisses. Adorable and delicious they are a fabulous Christmas treat!

Peanut Butter Kisses:
1/2 cup butter
1 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup dark brown sugar
1 egg
2 tablespoons milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
48 hershey kisses, unwrapped

Cream together the butter, peanut butter and the sugars until fluffy. Add in the egg, milk and vanilla and beat for 2-3 minutes. Finally mix in the flour baking soda and salt.
Form 1 teaspoon (ish) sized balls of dough and put them on the cookie sheet. Once evenly spaced, press a kiss into each one and bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees.
Let cool for a few minutes before trying to move them.
These are a little bit softer than normal peanut butter blossoms because of the extra peanut butter, it just makes them better in my opinion!!
