Easy as 1-2-3 Peanut Butter Cookies

It is officially football season!  A big group of our friends make a big event out of each home football game (which we conveniently all have season tickets for).  We get to town early to tailgate most of the day, yell loud to support our team, and stay well past the end of the game. 

With tailgates, comes lots and lots of snacks.  Most my recipes (especially sweets), I try to make for events where there will be lots of people.  And what better to test my new recipes then on my unexpecting friends at tailgate parties? 

Here is a perfect recipe.  It is ridiculously easy. It is also delicious! I like to make individual snacks (cookies, bars, brownies) for tailgates because it is easier than having to have a sweet that you'll need utensils or a plate!

You'll Need:
2 cups of Creamy Peanut Butter 
1 cup of White Sugar
1 cup of Brown Sugar
2 Eggs
30 Hershey Kisses (if desired)
*Note: If desired, you can use all white sugar*

1. Put peanut butter, sugars, and eggs into a large mixing bowl.
2. Mix until very smooth (will be a bit "grainy")
3. Form into 1 inch balls
4. Bake for 10 minutes on 350 degrees
5. While the cookies are baking, unwrap your hershey kisses and once the cookies are right out of the oven, place the Hershey Kisses in the middle while still hot.
6. Cool for 5 minutes then transfer to rack

If you do not want to use the chocolate kisses, that is fine (although why anyone would choose to omit chocolate I still don't know), while the cookies are hot press your fork into an "X" so the cookies have a design
