One of our go-to Christmas cookies! Chocolate kisses are perched atop textbook peanut butter cookies in these sweet-and-salty treats.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Sift flour, baking soda, and salt into a bowl. In the bowl of a mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat together butter, peanut butter, and both sugars on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Beat in egg and vanilla. Reduce speed to low; alternate adding flour mixture and milk, beating until well combined. Cover and refrigerate 30 minutes. Shape dough into 1-inch balls (1 level tablespoon each) and transfer to parchment-lined baking sheets, spaced 1 inch apart. Freeze 30 minutes.

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Bake, rotating pans halfway through, until puffed, lightly cracked on top, and just set around edges, 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from oven and press a chocolate kiss into center of each cookie. Let cool on sheets 5 minutes, then transfer cookies to wire racks and let cool completely.
