Kiss Cookies

1/3 cup smooth peanut butter
1/8 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/8 tsp. salt
Sugar (for coating cookies)
20 Heshey's Kisses

Preheat oven to 350* F.

In a large bowl, beat the peanut butter, butter and brown sugar on medium speed until combined.
Beat in the egg, then add the vanilla extract. On low speed, blend in the flour and salt.

Shape the dough into 1 inch balls. Roll in the sugar to coat lightly. Place on unreased baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned.

Put cookies on cooling rack and immediately place an unwrapped Hershey's Kiss on the center of each cookie, pressing down so that the cookie cracks a little bit around the edge.

Using a metal spatula, transfer cookies to wire racks and let them cool copletely. Repeat until all the dough is used or all te Kisses are gone. Makes approximately 20 cookies.
