We were heading over to our good friend’s house for dinner and I was asked to bring a dessert. My friend, Currié, loves the combination of peanut butter and chocolate so my son and I decided to make these cookies for our dessert. They were very simple and fun to make and tasted fantastic. I expected the cookies to turn out soft and gooey but they ended up being crisp, which I really enjoyed. We all loved the cookies, especially the kids.

How to Make Peanut Butter Chocolate Kiss Cookies
Whisk the flour, baking soda, and salt together in a small bowl.
Using a mixer on medium-high, beat together butter and peanut butter together until creamy, about 2 minutes. Add the sugars and beat until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the vanilla and egg then beat until thoroughly incorporated.
Slowly add the flour mixture to the peanut butter mixture until just incorporated. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for 1 hour. If you are in a hurry you can place it in the freezer for 15 minutes.
Roll the dough into small balls then coat in white sugar. Place on the baking sheet. Lightly flatten the cookies down with a spatula.
Bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven then place a chocolate kiss into the center of the cookie. Place back in the oven and bake for 1 minute. Remove from the oven and cool on racks. Enjoy.
