Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies

Here's a cookie that Santa would love to get on Christmas Eve.  And they are so easy to make (honestly, the hardest thing about the recipe is unwrapping the Hershey Kisses) that you might as well make a whole bunch for neighbors, coworkers and the kids' teachers.

Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies
Makes 2 dozen cookies.

1 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
24 Hershey Kisses

In a large bowl, cream the peanut butter and sugar until light and fluffy.  Add the egg and vanilla; beat until ingredients are blended.

Roll into 1 1/4-inch balls.  Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.  Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until tops are slightly cracked. 

Immediately press one chocolate kiss into the center of each cookie.  Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
