Peanut Butter and Chocolate Kisses

A Christmas Holiday Tradition

½ cup butter or margarine
½ cup peanut butter (130 grams)
¾ cup packed brown sugar (182 grams)
¼ cup granulated sugar (56 grams)
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
¼ tsp. salt
1 ¾ cups of flour (210 grams)
1 tsp. baking soda
3 tbs. granulated sugar
48 Hershey Kisses (unwrapped)

Preheat oven to 375°. In a medium bowl, beat together butter or margarine, peanut butter, brown sugar, ¼ cup granulated sugar, egg, vanilla and salt, until light and fluffy. Add flour and baking soda, beating until thoroughly blended. Shape dough into 48 balls, using a round teaspoon for each. Roll the balls in the 3 tbs. granulated sugar. Place 2 inches apart on a baking sheet. (Use the air insulated baking sheets if available). Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven and immediately top each cookie with a chocolate kiss. Press the kiss carefully into each cookie. The cookies will flatten and crack slightly. Remove cookies from sheet and cool on racks. Makes 48 cookies
