- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar

- 1 large egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 1/3 cup all purpose flour
- pinch of salt
- 3/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar for rolling
- 18 hershey kisses
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper, set aside. In a stand mixer with the paddle attachment cream butter and both sugars until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
Add in peanut butter and mix for 1-2 minutes. Add in egg and vanilla. Mix until combined and clump free.
Add in flour, salt and baking soda and mix just until combined. Make sure not to over mix.
Scoop out dough and portion into 1 tablespoon cookie dough balls. Add sugar to a small bowl and roll each cookie in the sugar and place onto the prepared baking sheet.
Bake cookies for 8 minutes or until cracked and puffy. Remove from the oven and gently place a hershey kiss in the center of each cookie. Return to the oven and bake for an additional 2 minutes.
Allow the cookies to cool completely on the baking sheet and then serve!
