Need to make holiday cookies fast?? I suggest this recipe! Throwing everything together takes minimal time, and they are out of the oven in under 10 minutes! I brought these to Heather’s cookie swap, but didn’t make enough to munch on! Chris had a hankering for them last night, so late night baking ensued!
I have found that the Land O Lakes recipe is the tastiest!!
- 1/2 Cup Sugar
- 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
- 1/2 Cup *1 stick* Butter
- 1/2 Cup Peanut Butter
- 1 Egg
- 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
- 1 & 3/4 Cup Flour
- 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
- 48 Hershey’s Kisses
- (you will need about 1/4 extra sugar to roll the raw dough in)
How to do it:
Heat oven to 375°F. Combine 1/2 cup sugar, brown sugar, butter and peanut butter in large bowl. Beat at medium speed until light and fluffy. Add egg, vanilla and salt; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour and baking soda. Continue beating, scraping bowl often, until well mixed.
Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll balls in 1/4 cup sugar. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until very lightly golden brown. Immediately press 1 chocolate kiss in center of each cookie. Remove from cookie sheets; cool completely on wire racks.
These are a classic favorite that never get old!
