Food for Friday

Here’s a recipe from a book that we carry here in the store titled Homemade Christmas.  This book is filled with not only recipes but also gift and decorating tips to help you make the most of the holidays.  Browsing through the recipe section I came across one that I’ve always wanted to try.

Doesn’t everyone at a party pounce on those co0kies that have the Hershey’s Kisses in the middle?  Try your hand at making a batch!img_5160-copy

Peanut Kisses

1 stick butter, softened
1/2 C sugar
1/2 C brown sugar
1/2 C peanut butter
1 egg
2 T milk
1 t vanilla
1-3/4 C flour
1 t soda
1/2 t salt
Sugar for dusting
36 chocolate kisses

Cream butter, sugars, and peanut butter together.  Add egg, milk, and vanilla; beat well.  Sift flour, soda, and salt together; combine with peanut butter mixture, and shape into 36 balls using about 1 teaspoonful.  Roll in sugar and bake on an ungreased cookie sheet at 375 degrees for 8 minutes.  Remove and quickly press a chocolate kiss on each ball until the ball is flattened.  Bake 3 to 4 minutes longer.

See, I would have thought you flattened the cookies before baking, but now I get how these work!  Yum!

C = Cup; T = Tablespoon; t = teaspoon.

Have a tasty weekend!
