1/2 cup butter or shortening
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 egg whites or 1 whole egg
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1. If you have shortening, use that instead of butter. Although there is no change in taste, butter tends to flatten out the cookies a bit.
Take peanut butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and butter in a bowl.
Add egg whites.
Beat until fluffy.
Sift the flour and combine with baking soda, baking powder and salt.
Add the dry ingredients to the butter-sugar mixture.
Mix well to form a nice dough. Cover the dough and refrigerate for 3 hours.
After 3 hours make small balls with the dough.
Roll the balls over granulated sugar. This gives a nice shiny layer to the cookies.
Place 2 inches apart in an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375F for 10 minutes until the bottom turns golden brown.
Out of the oven. They will be very brittle now. Place the kisses chocolate immediately so they stick to the cookie.
The cookies harden on cooling. The kisses chocolate melts initially and then hardens.
Tasty and addictive cookies ready. We loved it and our friends did too.
