Quick Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies

Happy Sunday!  I hope you're all having a blessed morning and a wonderful time at church or home with your family today.  I can't wait to worship with my whole family since Mr. Cozy is off today!

My peanut butter kiss cookies hit the spot for a quick and delicious treat, that would be just right for a snowy Sunday afternoon or to nibble watching Downton!  These cookies are ones I grew up on, but I slightly enhanced the awesome "3 ingredient peanut butter cookie" that Mom and I usually make.

The original "3 ingredient cookie" calls for 1 c. Sugar, 1 c. Peanut butter, and 1 Egg.  So simple!  In these I added brown sugar to keep them soft, a splash of vanilla, and a little flour, which we usually throw into the 3 ingredient cookie anyways for a smoother texture.

These peanut butter kiss cookies are chewy, rich, and taste like a million bucks!  They're one of those treats I hope our children will remember growing up with, too!

Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies

1c. Peanut butter
1/2 c. White sugar
1/2 c. Brown sugar
1 Egg
1 tsp. Vanilla extract
1 heaping Tbsp. Flour (Mom uses self rising, I use all-purpose.  Doesn't matter here.)
Aprox. 18 unwrapped chocolate kids candies (Hershey's)

Preheat oven to 350.
Lightly beat the egg in a small bowl.  Mix together peanut butter with sugars and add egg and vanilla to blend well.  Add the flour and stir to incorporate.

Roll into 1 1/2 in. balls.  Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for 9-11 minutes.  As soon as you take them out, have the chocolate kisses ready to press in the middle of each.  Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes before digging in! 
Makes about 1 1/2 dozen

My ten year old granddaughter made some of these for Christmas and was really proud of herself. They were a big hit!
