peanut butter and oat kiss cookies (and a giveaway!)

Full Disclaimer: I received complimentary items from Peanut Butter & Co. to facilitate this post. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting brands that support Cornflake Dreams.

One of my all-time favorite cookies are Peanut Butter Blossoms. My mom always makes them for Christmas, so I associate them with the holidays. I found a simple recipe for peanut butter oat cookies that uses only FIVE ingredients, so I thought it would be the perfect base for a little chocolate. Desserts are always better with chocolate and peanut butter! I used two of my favorite Peanut Butter & Co. flavors -- Cinnamon Raisin Swirl and Smooth Operator and they gone within a few days.
Recipe adapted via
Ingredients:
1/2 cup Peanut Butter (I used 1/4 cup Smooth Operator Peanut Butter and 1/4 cup Cinnamon Raisin Swirl for a hint of cinnamon and raisins)
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
1 large Egg
1 1/4 cups Bob's Red Mill Organic Old Fashioned Rolled Oats  
1/2 tsp Baking Soda 
24 Hershey's Kisses

METHOD: 
In a small bowl, cream peanut butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Beat in egg. Add oats and baking soda to creamed mixture; mix well. Drop by tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto greased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 6-8 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool. Immediately place an unwrapped Kisses candy into center of each cookie. Store in an airtight container. This recipe makes about 2 dozen cookies. Enjoy!

Peanut Butter & Co. is giving away 2 jars of peanut butter: Smooth Operator and Cinnamon Raisin Swirl + 1 package of Bob’s Red Mill Organic Old Fashioned Rolled Oats so you can get baking :) Please use the Rafflecopter widget below to enter.
