Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies

There is no such thing as too many cookie recipes.  So I’m sure I will forever be trying out cookie recipes to find more good ones.  And this one definitely goes in the good pile.
My girls love helping make these, and while we usually run out of kisses for all the cookies (some disappear during the unwrapping… strange…), it really doesn’t matter since they taste good without them as well.  And of course you could leave them off and press with a fork like traditional peanut butter cookies as well. 
We make them with or without rolling them in the extra sugar as well.  I kind of like them better without the extra sugar, but some like it with since it does give an extra sugary crunch.  Try it both ways to see what you like better.
1/2 cup sugar, plus extra for rolling
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 egg
2 T milk
2 tsp vanilla
1 3/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
40 chocolate kisses, optional
In a large bowl or bowl of electric mixer, cream together the sugar, brown sugar, butter, and peanut butter.
Add the egg, milk, and vanilla and mix just until combined.
Add the flour, baking soda, and salt and mix until well blended.
Make about 40 walnut-size scoops (my cookie scooper works perfect).
Roll balls in sugar, if desired,  and bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for about 8 minutes at 350 degrees.
Immediately press a kiss into each cookie if desired after removing from the oven.
Cool on a wire rack.
