Step 1

Preheat oven to 350˚F.

In a medium-sized bowl, sift the flour, baking soda, and salt.

Fit a stand mixer with the paddle attachment. Place the brown sugar, butter, peanut butter and 1/2 cup sugar into the bowl and mix on medium speed until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Once fluffy, add the egg and vanilla extract until incorporated, while still mixing. Turn the mixer to low and add the flour mixture until just combined, making sure not to over-mix the dough.

Shape the dough into 1-inch balls. In a small bowl, place 2 tablespoons sugar. Roll the dough balls in the sugar. Place the balls on baking sheets, 2-inches apart. Place the baking sheets in the oven for 10 minutes.

Remove the cookies from the oven and insert Kisses into the middle of each cookie. Let cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes before transferring the cookies to a wire cooling rack or a room-temperature plate.
