  • cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup softened unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup creamy or crunchy peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar plus an additional 1/3 cup for rolling cookie dough
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream or whole milk
  • 48 Hershey Kisses unwrapped


  • In the bowl of your stand mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment, add butter an mix on medium-speed until creamy, about 30 to 45 seconds.
  • Add in the peanut butter, 1/3 cup both granulated and light brown sugars and mix on medium speed until light and creamy, about 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Then add in the egg, vanilla and heavy creamed mix on low speed until incorporated.
  • Lastly add half of the dry ingredients, mix until just combined before adding in the remaining dry ingredients and mixing until just combined.
  • Cover and chill cookie dough for 45 minute to 1 hour.
  • Preheat your oven to 375° and line a rimmed, metal baking sheet with parchment or a silicone mat.
  • Use a tablespoon scoop to measure out each cookie, roll into 1-inch balls and coat in reserved 1/3 cup sugar. Place 12 cookies, 2-inches apart per pan and bake on the middle rack of your preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes. Rotate the pan halfway during baking to ensure even baking.
