Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe

I made peanut butter cookies this week. They were extremely delicious.
I was just going to post some photos of the cookies, but I thought it would be very inhuman of me to tell you and show you how wonderful these cookies are without even giving you a recipe so you can try them. 
So today I will be sharing this amazing cookie recipe with you guys that my awesome mom created. (Thank you, mum!) These cookies are sooo easy to make, and they tastes absolutely heavenly! I'm normally not really into baking or cooking, but lately I've actually been enjoying it. Hopefully I'll be able to post some recipes of my own sometime. :)

Ingredients
1 cup of peanut butter
1/2 cup of butter
1/2 cup of what sugar
3/4 cup of brown sugar
1 egg
1  1/4 cup of flour
1/4 tspn. of salt
1/2 tspn. of baking soda
1 tbs. of vanilla
3 tbs. of milk
lots of hershey kisses

First off, preheat the oven to 350°. Put your butter in a mixing bowl and microwave it until it softens a little. Then add the peanut butter, brown sugar, regular sugar, and an egg in the bowl.  Mix them up with a mixer.

Once you're done, put all the remaining ingredients in the bowl. Mix it with a mixer again. Add more milk if your dough is too dry or add more flour if it's too liquidy. Mix them together yet again if you add flour or milk.
Roll your dough into small balls and put them on a baking sheet. Put your cookies in the oven. They'll only need to bake for about 10 minutes, so check on them every so often until you see that the edges of the cookies have turned a light brown.

While you wait, go ahead and take the wrappers off the Hershey kisses. When the cookies are done, take those bad boys out of the oven and set the baking sheet on a pot holder. Last but certainly not least, put the kisses you unraveled in the middle of each cookie.
Then you're done! Don't forget to pour yourself a glass of milk so you can begin eating your warm freshly-baked cookies.

  7. These look insanely delicious. Although every time I try and make cookies I end up eating at least half of them by myself. Who can say no to freshly baked cookies?

    I'll have to give these a try :) Thanks for sharing!
