There is a reason that these Peanut Butter Blossom Hershey Kiss Cookies are one of the most requested cookies in every household for the holiday season – they are pillowy soft peanut butter cookies with a chocolate kiss on top that are cookie perfection. You won’t believe how easy they are to make.
How to Make Peanut Butter Cookies with the Hershey’s Kiss on Top
These Hershey kiss cookies are probably one of the most recognizable cookies out there! You want to use the milk chocolate kisses as the flavour matches the best with these cookies but you can try other types if you want!
- First, prepare your peanut butter cookie dough according to the recipe instructions.
- Form the peanut butter cookie dough into 1-inch balls, roll in sugar and place on a parchment lined baking sheet approximately 2 inches apart.
- Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes until the edges are golden brown. The trick is to not over bake them!
- Remove the cookies from the oven and instantly press a Hershey’s kiss (unwrapped) into the middle of each cookie.
- Let the cookies cool completely on the cookie sheet or they will break.
How to Freeze Hershey Kiss Cookie Dough
This chocolate chip cookie dough is perfect for making ahead of time and freezing! Freezing chocolate chip cookie dough is incredibly easy and is a great way to save time for busy families on the go, you can pre-make a ton of dough and keep it in the freezer for when you need to use it
- Prepare the cookie dough according to the recipe instructions.
- Roll the cookie dough into pre-formed balls.
- Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and flash freeze for an hour so that they won’t stick together when you place in the freezer safe bag.
- Place the balls into a sealed container or a bag. IF you make the dough balls they DO deteriorate in the freezer faster, I would only give them a month in there, tops.
How to Bake Peanut Butter Cookies From Frozen Cookie Dough
Now that you have the cookie dough frozen, you can bake it up any time you want!
- Remove your dough from the freezer and let defrost.
- Preheat your oven to 375 °F.
