Cookies Anyone??

This past weekend my mom and I decided to bake an assortment of cookies for the upcoming week.  We're bringing some to my Aunt's house for Christmas Eve dinner for all of our family to enjoy.  One of my all-time favorite recipes is this Peanut Butter Kiss cookie (:  We made those, along with yummy snickerdoodles.  {Except I fell asleep on the couch while my mom made those.  Sorry mom!}

Something about peanut butter and chocolate combined makes my mouth water.  Is yours watering yet?!  If so, here's an easy-peasy recipe!

Here are your ingredients:

We looked up the recipe on my mom's new iPad (:

Super easy recipe! Just mix the peanut butter and sugar into one bowl, then once that's mixed thoroughly, add the egg and vanilla.  

Now's the fun part!  Roll the batter into small balls and place on the cookie sheet.  Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees.

Once they're out of the oven, place a Hershey's kiss in the middle of each cookie.

Let them cool, then you're done! Pure deliciousness! 

Finished Snickerdoodles and Peanut Butter Kiss cookies. Yum!

PS. Shasta got to lick the Peanut Butter tub when we were through.  Needless to say, it made her day:

What are your favorite cookies for this time of year? Do tell!  We may bake more tomorrow!

I'm also guest posting at:
today! Carly is simply adorable, so if you haven't been to her blog yet- hurry on over!  I'm sharing how I transformed my terribly outdated (and wallpapered...eek!) bathroom into a modern space.  I just adore the name of Carly's blog, too. Makes me wish I was more creative with mine, ha!  So, head on over to Honey and the Moon (:
