1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup SunButter® (we used Creamy)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda*
1/2 teaspoon baking powder*
Additional sugar for rolling
36 Hershey’s Kisses® (plain chocolate variety), unwrapped
*Sometimes, but not always, the natural chlorophyll contained in sunflower seeds reacts with baking soda and baking powder in the recipe, causing a green color inside the cookies after they cool. This is completely harmless! Depending on the recipe you can reduce baking soda/powder by about one third or a splash of lemon juice may help prevent any “greening”.
Heat oven to 375°F.
In large bowl, cream butter and SunButter together until smooth. Add sugars and cream for 2 to 3 minutes. Add egg, beating until combined.
Stir in flour, baking soda, and baking powder until dough forms.
Shape dough into 1-inch balls; roll in additional sugar. On ungreased cookie sheets, place balls about 2 inches apart.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Immediately press 1 Kiss candy in center of each cookie.
Remove from cookie sheets to cooling rack.
