This is another traditional recipe that we make all the time in my home. I
think that, more than any other cookie, this one deserves to be eaten while it is
still hot. Or at least warm. Especially if you add the optional chocolate kiss.
2/3 cup peanut butter
1 cup butter at room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 cup dark brown sugar
½ cup dark Karo corn syrup
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 ½ cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 bags Hershey Kisses (optional)
Blend the flour, salt and the baking soda in a separate bowl. Then in a separate mixing bowl cream together
the butter, peanut butter, both sugars, corn syrup, eggs and vanilla. Gradually add the flour mixture until it is all
Use a spoon to drop the batter in spoon sized drops on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake in a preheated
375 degree oven for 10-13 minutes.
Optional Hershey Kisses method: Form the dough into small spoon sized bowls and roll them in some extra
white sugar. Bake them in a 375 degree oven for 8 minutes, remove them, and push one Hershey Kiss into the
middle of each forming cookie. Then bake for 5 minutes more, checking often to see that they are not too done. Your
oven may run hotter or colder than mine.
