Merry Christmas!

December 25th, 2009

Merry Christmas!  I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas!

These are my family’s favorite holiday cookies… a Christmas can’t go by without me baking them…  ENJOY!

Peanut Butter Hershey Kiss Cookies

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup smooth peanut butter (don’t use reduced fat)
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 & 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt

1. Cream butter, peanut butter and sugars.
2. Add the eggs and vanilla, beat well.
3. Add the dry ingredients (can always mix the dry ingredients on wax paper and then add).
4. Shape in 1 inch balls and roll in sugar. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
5. Bake at 350 for 12 to 15 minutes. (for soft cookies take them out at 12 minute when the cracks in the cookies still look a little moist. They will continue to cook a little after you remove them from the oven and will not become as hard.)
6. Remove from oven and press the kiss on. Allow to cool until the kiss has rehardened.

    [...] Peanut Butter Hershey Kiss Cookies: These are my family’s favorite!  One year I didn’t want to make them in an effort to save some calories.  Well, my family was not to happy so I had to make them anyway.  The key is to not over cook them so they remain soft. [...]
