This is the first cookie we make every year. When they were small, the kids helped unwrap the Hershey kisses. They even waited until they were all done unwrapping to eat one...or two.
Cream: 1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
Add: 1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
Blend in: 1 3/4 cups flour
1 tsp. soda
Shape dough into balls. Roll balls in sugar. Bake at 375 degrees (F) for 8 minutes. Remove from oven and top each with a Hershey kiss. Bake 2 minutes longer.
That's it. The kisses will be very soft when just out of the oven, so you need to wait a little while to pack them into storage containers.
This is our favorite Christmas cookie and baking them marks the beginning of the Season.
