Starting in the beginning of December I start baking cookies, lots of cookies. Now Peanut Butter Kiss cookies don’t look like Christmas cookies, but they are one of my kids’ favorites, so they get made every year.
This is a quick peanut butter cookie recipe you can quickly mix and bake.
I then pack them in cookie tins and mail cookies to friends and family all over the United States.
How to Ship Cookies for Mailing
The best way to pack cookies for shipping is tight and snug so they can’t move around. I use tissue paper and line cookie gift tins. The I fill the tins and use the tissue paper to fill in the empty spaces around the treats. Everyone tells me they arrive just fine.
I usually make at least six different varieties of cookies every year, not including my candies. This tradition started when I moved from Connecticut to Oklahoma for school and was looking for an inexpensive gift to send to friends.
Another reason I started making peanut butter cookies is one year I ran our of flour and these have three ingredients: peanut butter, sugar, and an egg. So not only inexpensive to make is also a simple gluten free cookie recipe for a friend who is gluten intolerant.
Recipe for Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies
I have my favorite Pampered chef baking pan that LOVE to bake cookies on. WHY? The baking stone evenly bakes the cookies and doesn’t over brown the bottoms. Most metal cookie sheets get too hot and the bottoms of the cookies burn too easily.
Preheat oven to 350F, unwrap candy kisses
- One Cup Peanut Butter ( I use smooth)
- 1 Cup Granulated Sugar
- Large egg (1)
- Mix together, roll teaspoon-size balls, I use a melon scoop for uniform size balls
- Place on cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes
- Remove cookies from oven and immediately place an unwrapped Hershey Kiss into the cooked ball.
- Cool slightly and remove from baking sheet.
- Place on wire cookie rack until completely cool.
