Easy Peanut Butter Cookies

Super quick to make and even faster to disappear.

Peanut Butter Cookie

These peanut butter cookies are made with just 4 ingredients.

All that’s needed is a jar of peanut butter, eggs, sugar and Hershey’s Chocolate Kisses.

These cookies really pack a punch.

They’re quite rich for such a small cookie. 

And so cute too.

The first time I tried these was at a relative’s house and it was a rainy day.

A bunch of us were visiting together and having a great time.

There happened to be some Hershey’s Kisses in the cupboard and a jar of peanut butter so we made these cookies.

They were the perfect treat.

Let’s check out the ingredients.

Peanut Butter Cookie Ingredients

Hershey’s Kisses, peanut butter (smooth or crunchy), egg, and sugar

printable recipe with the measurements and instructions is located at the bottom of this post.

Here’s how to make it.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Unwrap about 30 Hershey’s Kisses.  Put them in a bowl or plate and set aside.

With a large sturdy spoon, mix together.

Peanut Butter Cookies on Pan

Before rolling the cookie dough into balls, rub a small amount of flour on your hands.

Roll the dough into balls (a little bit larger than a walnut) and place them onto an ungreased cookie sheet.

Leave a little bit of empty space in between each dough ball (the cookies will need to be baked in batches).

Bake in a preheated oven.  Make sure to watch them closely because the bottom of the cookie can brown really fast while the top of the cookie doesn’t tend to brown.

After 6 minutes in the oven, use a spatula to slightly lift one of the cookies while they’re in the oven and check the brownness making sure they’re not getting too dark.

Bake until the bottom of the cookies are a deep golden color (in total, about 10 minutes).

Peanut Butter Cookies on Rack

As soon as the cookies come out of the oven, while they’re still warm and on the cookie sheet, put one Hershey’s Kiss on top of each cookie and gently push it slightly into the cookie.

Transfer the cookies from the pan onto a cooling rack and let cool.

Serve when slightly warm.

As they cool they become more sturdy and the Hershey’s Kiss hardens back up again.
