Peanut butter cookies topped with melted Hershey kisses

In honor of the Reese’s peanut butter cup

These are an ode to likely the greatest candy in the history of humankind – the Reese’s peanut butter Cup. I have taken a peanut butter cookie, which indeed is tremendous, and plopped melted Hershey kisses on top. These are for my goddaughter Lyndsey’s birthday party. Again, Rob may, or may not, have taste tested a cookie.

Well, well, well. The cookie monster at it again!

Couple of notes – spoon your flour from your flour bag into your measuring cup… Chill the cookies if you have time…and preheat your oven to 375 degrees for 20 minutes before baking.

  • Ingredients
  • 1 cup Crisco
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbs cornstarch
  • 2 1/2 cups Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder

Directions – cream Crisco, sugar, brown sugar and peanut butter. Add eggs. Blend in dry ingredients. Scoop out 1/4 cups of dough and roll into mounds. Chill a few hours. Preheat oven to 375 degrees for 20 minutes before baking. On a cookie sheet lined with nonstick baking liners, stagger cookies., bake 10 to 13 minutes, or until bottoms are light golden. Cool completely.

Staggered cookies

To make the topping – in a microwave safe bowl, microwave 45 unwrapped Hershey kisses in 25 second increments until you can stir smooth. Blend in 1 tbs vegetable oil. Spoon on top of cookies. Let set. Store in covered container.

Tres belle!

Thank you for stopping by today. Wishing you an easy day filled with peace, love and hope.
