Serves: 42 cookies


  1. Preheat the oven, prepare the cookie sheets, and make the Basic Soft Peanut Butter Cookie dough as directed in the recipe. Pinch off a piece of dough and roll into a 1-inch ball. Set on the cookie sheet and set a chocolate kiss in the center, pushing gently. Repeat with the remaining dough and candies, setting the cookies about 1½ inches apart on the cookie sheets.
  2. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until cookies are set and golden on the bottom. Let cool on the cookie sheets for 2 minutes, then remove to wire racks to finish cooling.
