Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies-"Cupa, Cupa Cookies"

**Natrually Gluten Free… meaning -those with or without allergies will enjoy these! 

This recipe is always a “must” on my cookie tray list! These cookies are so simple that I call them “cupa cookies” because you need a “cupa sugar and a cupa peanut butter” (and an egg and the kisses of course). If you are doing Christmas baking this week, be sure to add chocolate kisses to your grocery list…chances are you have the rest of the ingredients!  
Enjoy! ~Janelle 

Sugar, peanut butter, an egg, chocolate kisses


Combine the sugar, peanut butter and egg


Beat until well combined


Roll by the teaspoonfuls onto a un-greased baking sheet (I foil line when I am baking to avoid having to scrub cookie sheets in between batches!). Make sure to give enough room for slight spreading. Bake in a 350 oven for 10 mins or until lightly browned. 


While cookies are baking, unwrap your kisses. 


When cookies are finished baking and while they are still warm out of the oven, lightly press a kiss on top of each one.

  1. Love these! I make them with reeses's mini peanut butter cups–I got the recipe from Everyday Food years ago:-) I did a tuturial for mulling spices today if your interested. I love these in a crockpot full of apple cider for the holidays. Are you doing Italian cookies yet? I am making the annisette and pizzettes (my favorite) and pizelles.

    Merry Christmas Janelle!

  2. Janelle Nehrenz says:

    Hi Suzanne! Mmm…I will have to come visit right now! I have not made pizelles yet …I had plans on doing a blog on them and just never got to it! My friend's mom is from Italy and I was going to make them with her. Now, with 3 children home I don't know if I will get to do that…but there is always next year! Merry Christmas to you Suzanne!

  3. I am off to go buy some Hershey's Kisses!

    Anyways I think they were delicious, my 4 yr old thought they were YUM-O and my hubs thought they tasted more like peanut brittle (because of the nuts)

  13. Darlene Schacht says:

    I used twice as much peanut butter as I did sugar, and 2 eggs. So mine spread out too much. I want to try your recipe next time. I bet they were easier to form into balls. Mine were so gooey! Argh.
