PEANUT BUTTER KISSES

Ingredients:

1 cup smooth peanut butter

3/4 cup firmly packed light browns sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1 egg

1/4 cup semisweet or milk chocolate pieces (Hershey's Kisses)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

Combine peanut butter, brown sugar, egg and vanilla in large bowl; stir until smooth. Roll dough into small balls, about 3/4 inch in diameter. Place on ungreased cookie sheet, about 1" apart. Flatten slightly. Press 1 chocolate piece in center of each cookie. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes or until light brown. Kisses can be stored in airtight containers for several days.

These cookies are addictive. They're so easy to make and a real treat at holiday time.
