  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened (113 g)
  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter (213g)
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed (138g)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar (50g), plus more for rolling
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (5ml)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon milk (15ml)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour (248g)
  • 40 Hershey's Kisses or a few more


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two cookie sheets with silicone baking mats or parchment paper.
  • Place butter and peanut butter in a large bowl. Using a hand or a stand mixer, mix until combined then add both sugars. Cream until smooth. Mix in egg, vanilla, and milk and mix on medium speed until combined.
  • Mix in baking soda and salt, then slowly mix in flour and mix just until the batter is smooth and comes together. Be sure to scrape the sides of the bowl during mixing.
  • Fill a bowl with additional granulated sugar, about 1/2 cup.
  • Scoop 1 tablespoon balls of dough and roll in sugar. Place 2-inches apart on prepared cookie sheets. Meanwhile, unwrap the Heshey's Kisses.
  • Bake for 9-13 minutes, or until the edges are just golden brown and the tops are no longer glossy. Immediately place a Kiss in the center of each cookie. Allow to cool before removing from cookie sheets.
