We used the same recipe to make 2 different treats! Brilliant! This is a good recipe to have kids help with. Kids are great at unwrapping all the PB cups and kisses while you mix the dough, helping roll all the balls, and then they can easily press the candy into the baked cookies!
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 T. milk
20 miniature peanut butter cups, unwrapped
20 hershey's kisses, unwrapped
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Sift together flour, salt, and baking soda. Set aside. Cream together the butter, sugars, and peanut butter until fluffy. Beat in the egg, vanilla, and milk. Add the flour mixture; mix well. Shape into 40 balls.
Place 20 balls into an ungreased mini muffin pan. Bake for 8 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately press a mini peanut butter cup into each ball. Cool and carefully remove from pan.
Roll remaining 20 balls in granulated sugar and place on cookie sheet. Bake for 8 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately press a hershey's chocolate kiss into each ball. Cool and carefully remove from pan.
A version for Morgan: Use sugar cookie dough and rolo candies for the mini muffins; and use sugar cookie dough with hershey's kisses for the blossoms.
