Food to love : Jenni's Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies.

This girl can bake. Since she and her husband moved out west (just a quick jaunt from where Stone and I live!) she has made us incredible cookies and scones. I mean who really makes scones from scratch? Jenni does. And they are awesome.

We were over at their house recently and she offered us these delicious cookies, which I know so many of us have had and loved for years. There was something different about these though, something that made me go back for seconds and even thirds. So I thought I must share the recipe with you all too so we can stop sticking Hershey Kisses in store bought Peanut Butter cookie dough and calling it good :) Hope you feel inspired to get in the kitchen and bake something. I know I do.

Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies

1/2 cup peanut butter
1 egg
1/2 cup butter
1 1/3 cup flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3 doz chocolate kisses

Beat margarine, peanut butter, 1/2 cup granulated and brown sugar until creamy. Beat in egg and vanilla. In another bowl, stir together flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add and blend into creamed mixture. Place the 1/4 cup granulated sugar in a small bowl. Roll dough into 1" balls, roll in sugar to coat. Place balls 2" apart on greased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Remove cookies from oven, quickly top each with a kiss, press down firmly. Bake for 3 to 5 minutes or until lightly browned. Transfer to cooling rack. Cool completely, store airtight. Makes about 3 dozen.
