WHOLE WHEAT PEANUT BUTTER KISSES

These are a new take on the traditional version of this cookie with the substitution of whole wheat flour and dark chocolate.

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup sugar, plus additional for rolling cookies
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 48 dark chocolate kisses, unwrapped
Directions:

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.

Combine sugars, butter and peanut butter in large bowl. Beat at medium speed until light and fluffy. Add egg, vanilla and salt; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour and baking soda. Continue beating until well mixed.

Shape dough into 1-inch balls.  Roll balls in sugar. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake for 6 minutes and press one kiss into the center of each cookie and continue to bake for 3 - 5 more minutes or until very lightly golden brown. Remove from cookie sheets; cool completely on wire racks.
