Peanut Butter Kisses

Tuesday, November 8, 2016

I've never been able to find peanut butter here in Zagreb, so when we bring a jar back with us from a commissary run in Italy, these cookies are even more of a treat for my family and especially for some of our Croatian friends! I hope you enjoy this rich, sweet, comforting recipe - perfect for this season!

Peanut Butter Kisses
(makes around 2.5 dozen)

1 C butter (250 grams), softened
1 C (250 grams) peanut butter 
1 TBS pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 C raw sugar
1 egg at room temperature
1 egg yolk at room temperature
2 C flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp fine sea salt

Preheat the oven to 350 F / 175 C.
Fold together the butter and peanut butter. Add in the vanilla, sugar, egg and egg yolk (this will make a softer, chewier cookie - something that helps with otherwise dry peanut butter cookies!) and once combined, gently fold in the dry ingredients.

Roll the doll into small balls and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 7-10 minutes (again, my oven here bakes quickly!) or until lightly browned around the edges. Place on a wire rack or the counter to cool while gently pushing a hershey kiss (or piece of chocolate) into the center. Enjoy!!


  1. Oh my goodness these look so yummy :)

  2. mmmm I'm a sucker for peanut butter cookies. These look delish! I wish I would have known about your peanut butter deficiency -- I would have brought some last month along with the nacho dip if I knew it was needed :)

    1. Girrrrl we've already eaten that nacho dip goodness, but we can get PB every time we go to Aviano! :)

  3. I love doing the peanut butter ones in the mini muffin tins with the peanut butter cups in them. We lived in Hershey for a while so there was never a shortage of peanut butter cups...or chocolate, there!

    1. YUM! I have a bad weakness for peanut butter cups when I'm pregnant!

  4. Aah, so the egg yolk is the key ingredient for chewiness! Thanks so much for the tip, as always I can't wait to try anything food-related on your blog. Love and blessings to your family on this day after Thanksgiving! I hope you had a lovely day Croatia, Ginny x
