Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 36 unwrapped Hershey's Kisses (a little less than one bag)
  • Extra 1/4 cup sugar, for rolling
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Unwrap the Hershey's Kisses.
  2. Combine all ingredients except the Hershey's Kisses and extra rolling sugar in the large bowl of a stand mixer. Mix well until combined.
  3. Scoop out small, tablespoon size amounts of dough and roll into balls between your palms, then roll each ball in the extra sugar in a shallow bowl. Place on a baking sheet spaced an inch or two apart, then bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Don't let these overbake - I almost always pull them out at the 8-9 minute mark.
  4. Immediately upon removing the cookies from the oven, gently press an unwrapped Hershey's Kiss in the center of each cookie. It will melt from the heat of the cookie and then eventually harden again as the cookies cool completely.
