Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies -- Four Year Blogging Anniversary!!!!

Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies are so perfect for Valentine's Day.  I make them every year at this time because my children enjoy them so much!  The recipe is a oldie, but a goodie.  They are so much better than the peanut butter and chocolate candy bar, don't you think?

Today marks the 4th Anniversary of my blog Red Couch Recipes.  Little did I know four years ago that I would still be blogging.  I kind of set up my blog on a lark.  Many things have happened, good and bad, and many things have changed, but blogging has always been a constant.  Thank you for your support and kind comments.  It has been a fun ride in the blogging world.

For these cookies, I would love for you to kind of under bake  them; they are best that way.
Peanut  Butter Kiss Cookies Recipe -- Makes about 24 cookies.
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup softened butter
1 egg
2 tablespoons milk
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
  1 3/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Granulated sugar to roll in
1 bag Hershey Kisses

 Cream sugars and butter. Beat in egg. Add milk, peanut butter and vanilla. Mix in dry ingredients. Mix well.   Roll into balls, walnut-sized, and roll in sugar. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes. When cooked, lightly press Hershey kiss in the middle. Make sure you put Hershey's kisses on after the cookies are baked and cooled for just a few minutes.   

Thanks for dropping by Red Couch Recipes.

A very nice Valentine's Day treat Joni! Congrats on four years of blogging fun:@)

Yes, that's the perfect Valentine treat, Joni. I love kiss cookies. My husband aggravates the family by stealing the kisses off the top and leaving the cookies all the time. Ugh.

Happy Bloggaversary too!! I'm not surprised that you ventured in here around a holiday time. You do holidays better than any single other person in Blogville, IMO.
