Peanut Butter Kisses

This cookie seems to really appeal to the imagination, a whole piece of candy nestled in a cookie! This recipe is from the King Arthur Cookie Companion, a great book if you like to bake cookies. My kids love that there are several special jobs for them in this recipe. . . there's peeling the kisses (and eating a few), there's rolling the cookies in sugar and then there's placing the kisses smack in the center of the warm cookie without burning yourself, oh what fun.
Peanut Buttter Kisses

1 stick butter
3/4 c. creamy peanut butter (that's around 7 ounces if you like to weigh)
1/3 c. white sugar
1/3 c. brown sugar
1 large egg
2 Tbsp milk
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 c. ap flour
48 chocolate kisses

Preheat oven to 375.
Cream the peanut butter, butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add the egg, milk, baking soda, salt and vanilla. Gradually add the flour.
Shape into 1 inch balls ( I must have messed this up because I did not get 48 cookies and my kids and husband had to eat the remaining kisses)
Roll in white sugar.  Bake for 10 minutes until light brown.  Put a kiss in the center of each hot cookie, cool completely.
