Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies

It’s time to do some more holiday baking. These cookies are one of my favorites of all time.  Believe it or not, the recipe is from a grocery store from many years ago when I was a kid.  My mom and I were both flabbergasted when we saw how few ingredients were required to make them.  See for yourself!


  • One 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
  • 3/4 C. peanut butter
  • 2 C. Bisquick original baking mix
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • sugar
  • 36 Hershey kisses

Heat the oven to 375ºF. Combine the sweetened condensed milk, peanut butter, Bisquick, and vanilla extract.  Stir together well with a wooden spoon.

Shape dough into 1 1/4″ balls and roll in sugar until coated evenly.

Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake for 8 minutes. They will look more noticeably “crinkled.”

Press an unwrapped chocolate kiss into the center of the cookie.

Let them cool for 8 to 10 minutes.

This is my go-to recipe for any occasion requiring mass cookie baking. They always end up looking flawless, and I love how they stay soft for several days. It’s quite simple really.

peanut butter + chocolate = mmmmmmmm

    I have a recipe that doesn't have peanut butter in the cookie, so Clint will actually eat them. It's the one my mom always made growing up. Also, I always bake the kisses and love what it does to them.

    This is my fav holiday cookie but my son is allergic so I don't make them. I love seeing them on my screen, virtual enjoyment 🙂
