Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies

 

A couple weekends ago, it seemed everyone had the same idea...let's make peanut butter kiss cookies! I had picked up some ingredients with plans to make these, and the night I did, my instagram and facebook blew up with everyone else's pictures of their freshly baked kiss cookies! Great minds think alike, right?!? Oh, it must be! So, even though it seems everyone under the sun knows how to make these, I figured I would still share my recipe, for the very few of you who need one for these yummy cookies! These are always a crowd pleaser! My son, Xander, for example, loves these so much, I have to practically hide them so he won't eat a whole batch in one day! I wish I had someone to hid them from me, too!

Ok, so really for this recipe you only need a few ingredients. The only thing I had to pick up special for this, were the Hershey Kisses. Which was no problem here, and most of them did end up on the cookies, I swear! ;) So, besides the kisses, you will need...peanut butter, butter, sugar/brown sugar, vanilla extract, flour, baking soda, 1 egg, and salt. No big surprises there, right? Ok, here is the recipe, simply laid out for you!
