One of my favorite holiday cookies are Hershey Kiss Cookies. I always seem to see these around the holidays, so I decided to try and make a couple dozen myself.
First the ingredients:
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1 3/4 cup flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
Hershey Kisses, 1 for each cookie
Pre-Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
Cream together butter, both sugars and peanut butter. Add 1 egg and vanilla. Add flour, baking soda and salt.
Form dough in walnut-size balls. Roll them in white sugar and place them on a cookie sheet.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Press Hershey Kisses into each cookie when fresh out of the oven.
Place the cookies back in the oven for 1 to 2 minutes to soften the Hershey Kisses to give them a nice smooth glaze. Allow to cool for 5 minutes.
Makes about 2 1/2 dozen cookies.
