For Valentine's Day I made my Valentine Raspberry Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies. I used the Betty Crocker recipe below and adapted it a tad. I adore peanut butter cookies, so it's not a surprise that I would drool over this recipe. I've tried the original recipe, but I must implore you to try this with Hershey's limited edition of Raspberry Chocolate. It's delicious!! I love the smooth hint of raspberry mixed with chocolate.
Note to self: stock up on Hershey's limited edition kisses.
cup granulated sugar
cup packed brown sugar
cup creamy peanut butter
cup butter or margarine, softened
cups ll-purpose flour
teaspoon baking soda
teaspoon baking powder
Shape dough into 1-inch balls; roll in additional granulated sugar. On ungreased cookie sheets, place about 2 inches apart.
Heat oven to 375°F. In large bowl, beat 1/2 cup granulated sugar, the brown sugar, peanut butter, butter and egg with electric mixer on medium speed, or mix with spoon, until well blended. Stir in flour, baking soda and baking powder until dough forms.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are light golden brown (I only needed to bake for 5 minutes) Immediately press 1 milk chocolate candy in center of each cookie. Remove from cookie sheets to cooling rack.
