I’m sure I’ve mentioned it here before, but I stink at baking…absolutely awful. But, for some reason, this time of year I get the urge. These are my very favorite cookies. I didn’t think it was possible, but I think I made them even better this time. I used Hershey’s peanut butter filled Kisses. They were amazing! I got this recipe from the Betty Crocker website.
1/2C Granulated sugar
1/2C Packed brown sugar
1/2C Peanut butter – personally I like chunky
1/4C Butter or margarine, softened
1 1/2C AP flour
3/4t. Baking soda
1/2t. Baking powder
3 dozen Hershey’s Kisses
Heat oven to 375ºF. Stir together 1/2 cup granulated sugar, the brown sugar, peanut butter, butter, shortening and egg. Stir in flour, baking soda and baking powder.
Shape dough into 1-inch balls; roll in granulated sugar. Place about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are light brown. Immediately press 1 chocolate star firmly in each cookie; cool on wire rack.
