Servings 7 dozen


  • 1 cup butter room temperature
  • 1 cup peanut butter smooth
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 3 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp Watkins Baking Vanilla
  • 1/4 cup white sugar for rolling
  • 2 bags Hershey Kisses candy unwrapped


  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • In bowl of stand mixer, combine butter, peanut butter, and sugars with paddle attachment. Beat on medium speed for 5 minutes, until light and fluffy. (You want it to feel smooth... like all the sugar has dissolved into the butters.)
  • Add eggs and baking vanilla to the dough, and allow to mix in thoroughly.
  • Meanwhile, sift together the flour, soda, and salt. Add to dough slowly. When the dough is just incorporated, remove bowl from stand mixer.
  • Use a 1" scoop for size, then roll balls of dough gently in hands until smooth. Roll dough in sugar until fully coated, then line up on baking sheet with 2 inches space between cookies. Bake for 8 minutes.
  • Immediately upon removing from oven, gently press a Hershey Kiss candy into the center of each cookie. Allow cookies to cool on sheet for 5-6 minutes, then gently remove using a small, thin spatula onto cooling rack until fully cool & chocolate hardens back up.
