  • 1¾cups all-purpose flour
  • 1teaspoon baking soda
  • ½teaspoon salt
  • 4ounces (1 stick) butter, at room temperature
  • ½cup smooth peanut butter (or other creamy nut butter)
  • ½cup granulated sugar, plus more for rolling
  • ½cup light brown sugar
  • 1large egg
  • 1tablespoon milk, half-and-half, oat milk or nut milk
  • 1teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Nonstick spray or vegetable oil for cookie sheet (optional)

Step 1

Sift together flour, baking soda and salt; set aside. Using an electric mixer, cream together butter, peanut butter, ½ cup granulated sugar and light brown sugar. Add egg, milk and vanilla; beat until well blended. Gradually add flour mixture, mixing thoroughly. If the dough is very soft, refrigerate for about 1 hour.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray, oil or line a cookie sheet with nonstick liner and set aside. Roll dough into 1-inch balls. (For a precise number of cookies, divide the dough into 5 pieces, and shape each piece into 12 balls.)

Step 3

Roll cookies in sugar and place 2 inches apart on cookie sheet. Bake until very light brown and puffed, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove sheet from oven and lightly press a candy kiss into center of each cookie, allowing it to crack slightly. Return to oven until light golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from oven, cool completely and store in an airtight container.
