I’m showing you how to make the best peanut butter cookies ever today! It’s my sister-in-law Pat’s peanut butter cookie recipe with Hershey’s Chocolate Kisses. Now they make dark chocolate kisses! Love it! This is really a tribute to her for being an awesome Aunt to my girl’s when they were growing up in Utah, and into their adult life as well. Pat turned 77 this year, she would always have a treat for them when we would go visit her. I still remember her using her apron to wipe their noses because they had fallen outside and came in crying. She always had her arms open to love everyone. I have a PRINTABLE recipe for you below.
As I looked for this recipe in my recipe book, I could see that it makes several cookies. Of course, it depends on the size of the cookie scoop, but I usually get 48 cookies from this recipe. This must be why we always looked forward to her bringing them to the family reunions each year because we could each have one or two or more!!. Thanks to Aunt Pat for the wonderful memories, and this yummy peanut butter cookie recipe!

Softest Peanut Butter Cookies

- 2 cups soft butter
- 2 cups peanut butter
- 2 cups white sugar
- 2 cups brown sugar
- 4 eggs

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Cream the butter, white sugar, brown sugar, soda, salt, peanut butter, and vanilla. Gradually add the flour until blended well. Shape the dough into 1-inch balls and place on a greased cookie sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes, depending on the size of balls you make. After baking, immediately add an unwrapped chocolate kiss in the center of each cookie. (This is optional)
