Peanut Butter Cookies

PenautThis recipe came from my favorite cookbook, Staff Meals.  The hersheys kisses, came from me.  This is up there with one of the easier recipes.

2 sticks unsalted butter at room temperature
1 cup light brown sugar
3/4 cup white granulated sugar
1 t. kosher salt
1 t. baking soda
2 large eggs
1 jar creamy peanut butter (18 ounces)
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 bag of hersheys kisses

Preheat oven to 375. 

Take butter, brown and white sugar beat until creamy.  Add salt and baking soda, beat again.  Add the eggs, beat until combined.  Add the peanut butter, beat again until combined.  Add the flour, 1 cup at a time, and beat thoroughly each time.  Now the mixture is ready to bake. 

Take a small amount in your hands and roll into a ball.  Put this on the baking sheet for the oven.  Press down each ball with your fork to slightly flatten the cookie.  Bake until browned.  I generally do 12 per sheet.  Takes about 12 minutes per batch.

When they come out of the oven immediately push a hersheys kiss (unwrapped of course) into the middle of the cookie.  Let cool.
