Peanut Butter Cookies With Hershey Kiss Chunks

We all really want a treat this afternoon. I had some peanut butter cookie dough left over in the freezer and some Hershey kisses in the pantry. In a previous life, those two ingredients formed the basis of our standard Christmas-cookie favorite - Peanut Butter Blossoms (or as they're referred to in our house, "Grandpa's Favorite Cookies").

I really didn't want to make more Peanut Butter Blossoms because I'm tired of finding peanut butter cookies with a hole in the middle all over the house. So I decided to just chop the kisses into chunks and fold that into the dough. The result was out-of-this-world deliciousness!

Peanut Butter Cookies With Hershey Kiss Chunks

  • 1 cup butter or margarine
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 25 Hershey Kisses, quartered into chunks
1. Mix together butter or margarine, peanut butter, white sugar and brown sugar until creamy. Add eggs and mix until combined.
2. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Stir into peanut butter mixture.
3. Fold in Hershey kiss chunks.
4. Roll about a tablespoon of dough into a ball and place on a cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining dough. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes, until lightly browned.

That's a good idea. I have the peanut butter cookie mix and the kisses and have been meaning to make the blossoms, but that was one thing that I was worried about-the kids just eating the kisses part. Great idea to add them into the dough. thanks!

A Grammatical Disclaimer

I freely admit to consistently using improper grammar in the following areas:
1. I like run-on sentences.
2. I have a tendency to end sentences with a pronoun. (I really do. I can't help it.)
3. I always seem to use passive voice in my sentences. (See?)

I've been trying to break this habit, unsuccessfully, for years, so now I just accept that as my writing style, and since I'm not writing for grades anymore, I embrace it. (Again, see?)

Hence, I invoke Blogger Artistic License for this blog!
