Coconut Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies

Coconut Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies are crunchy, sweet, chocolatey, and chewy. Coconut adds great flavor and texture to the traditional Peanut Butter Kiss Cookie and makes for a delectable cookie!

Coconut Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies
·1 cup of creamy peanut butter
·¾ cup sugar
·1 egg
·½ cup sweetened coconut flakes
·24-32 Hershey kisses, unwrapped

Preheat oven to 350˚. Cream together sugar and egg, then add peanut butter. Place coconut flakes into a shallow bowl. Roll cookie dough into 1 inch balls and then roll in coconut flakes. Place one inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake for 10-12 minutes. Place an unwrapped Hershey kiss in the center of the cookie as soon as the cookies are removed from the oven. Let cookies cool on cookie sheet for 1-2 minutes before moving to a wire cooling rack.

Yield: 24-32 cookies

These are so SIMPLE - I do like the classic peanut butter, egg and sugar gf cookies... coconut certainly would make them more substantial. Many thanks for this great idea!

I made these in a mini-muffin pan, and they were awesome! Thanks.

Would it work if I mix the coconut into the batter, and bake it in a square pan with jam swirled over the surface?
