1/2 cup brown sugar

Preheat oven to 375. Ungreased cookie sheet.

1. In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

2. In a large bowl or the bowl of a standing mixer, place the butter and mix with peanut butter.

3. Add sugars gradually to the peanut butter mix until creamy and well-blended.

4. Beat in egg and vanilla (and milk if you wish).

5. Stir in flour mix, gradually, until just combined.

6. Roll into one-inch balls, and cover in sugar.

7. Bake on ungreased cookie sheets for about 8 minutes.

8. While cookies are baking, unwrap appropriate number of kisses.
