Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 6 minutes
Total Time 16 minutes


  • 1 3/4 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 stick of unsalted butter at room temp
  • 1 cup of smooth peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon of milk
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • Extra granulated sugar for rolling the cookies.
  • A kiss for every cookie- Depending on what size cookies you make you’ll probably need 35-50 kisses.


  • Sift flour, baking soda, and salt and set aside.
  • Mix the butter and the peanut butter until well combined.
  • Add the granulated sugar and the brown sugar and mix. 
  • Add the milk, egg, and vanilla.
  • Add the flour and mix until combined.
  • Shape the dough into one inch balls and roll in the extra granulated sugar. 
  • Place them on the baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a Silpat 2" apart. 
  • Chill them in the fridge for 10-30 minutes before you bake them. Remember, the warmer the dough balls are the more the cookies will spread.
  • Bake them at 350 degrees for 6-9 minutes. When the edges start to turn light brown remove them from the oven and place a kiss in the center of each cookie immediately. 
  • Let them cool completely.
  • ENJOY!
