  • Scoop out small portions of the dough and form balls. 
  • Roll the balls in a bowl of granulated sugar.
  • Place them on a cookie tray, lined with parchment paper. Gently press your index finger in the center of each cookie to make a dent. 
  • Chill tray for 10 minutes to prevent spreading. 
  • Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes or until the edges are firm and golden brown. 
  • If the centers of the cookies have filled in during baking, use the back of a wooden spoon to deepen the holes again. Do this quickly before the cookies have a chance to cool down. 
  • Once the cookies cool down, fill the centers with peanut butter and a Hershey's kisses. Drizzle with melted chocolate (optional) and Enjoy!

Notes

  • Read all my tips above.
  • The dough will be crumbly but if it's hard to handle and form into balls, add a little more milk.
  • Heat peanut butter in the microwave to make it easier to fill cookies.  
  • Leftovers can be stored in a cookie jar at room temperature for up to 3 days.
