I love being able to whip up a quick and easy cookie with my kids. My peanut butter cookie recipe with Hershey’s kisses is just that: quick and easy! It takes no more than 10 minutes to prep the dough before baking and adding the kisses at the end is a simple task. Oh, and before I forget, my house always smells amazing after baking a batch of these cookies.
How to Make the 4 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies
I love to get my kids working in the kitchen with me, so I find this recipe to be a good way to start. Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
I allow my children to help with measuring and mixing. They mix together the peanut butter, sugar, and eggs with a mixer. Then we all have fun by rolling the mixture into quarter-sized balls. Please on a baking sheet and flatten each ball with a fork, making criss cross patterns.
Cook in the oven for 10-15 minutes, until the dough is golden brown around the edges.
While the peanut butter cookie balls are baking, I have my kids help me peel the wrappers off the Hershey’s kisses. (This is a great fine motor skill, too)! Once the cookies are out of the oven, sprinkle them with sugar. You can do this while the cookies are hot!
Once the cookies cool slightly, my kids do the last step! They place the kisses on top of the dough and I let them sneak one Hershey’s kiss for helping. 🙂
Whether it is a cold rainy day or the holidays are approaching, I can count on this cookie recipe every time. Easy, delicious, and kid-friendly!
