Organic Peanut Butter Cookie with Hershey’s Kiss

IMG_2025

With Christmas just around the corner, I wanted to bake one of my favorite cookies using entirely organic ingredients. I tried to find a suitable replacement for the Hershey Kiss, but was unsuccessful. Oh darn! So here is the recipe for Hershey’s “Peanut Butter Blossoms” using organic ingredients, except for the famous foil-wrapped Kisses!

Ingredients:

  • 48 Hershey’s Kisses Chocolates
  • 1/2 cup organic butter
  • 3/4 cup organic creamy peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup organic granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup organic light brown sugar
  • 1 organic egg
  • 2 tablespoons organic nonfat milk
  • 1 teaspoon organic vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups organic all-purpose flour
  • Additional organic granulated sugar

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Take the foil wrappers off the Kisses.
  2. Beat butter and peanut butter in a large bowl, until well blended. Add 1/3 cup granulated sugar and brown sugar, beat ingredients until fluffy. Add egg, milk and vanilla extract, beat until well mixed. Stir in flour and baking soda.
  3. Shape cookie dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in granulated sugar and place on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for about 14 minutes or until lightly browned. Immediately press a Kiss in the center of each cookie. The cookie will crack around the edges. Place on a wire rack to cool. Makes about 48 cookies.

Blogger’s Note: I omitted the salt, used nonfat milk, and only rolled the top half of the cookie dough balls in sugar. I always try to reduce sugar, fat and salt, whenever I can.
