These peanut butter kiss cookies are one of the most popular cookies on any holiday tray!

Cooking baking is in full force so we thought for this week’s recipe we would share our favorite ‘go-to’ cookie recipe for any time of the year, the Peanut Butter Kiss Cookie. 

These cookies are easy to recognize on a holiday tray – a classic peanut butter cookie with a Hershey kiss sitting upright in the center.  You better act fast if you want to try one at your holiday gathering because these cookies are always the first ones to be eaten. Better yet – make an extra batch to keep at home!

    I wish you had a way to just print your recipes. They sound delicious and I would like to try some of them for my family.

      We do have a print button on our more recent recipes that works with the Google Chrome browser. I know others who use Explorer have reported that it doesn’t work with that browser. Another option would be to copy and paste into a Word document so that you can print and save if you wish. Sorry for the inconvenience – we continue to search for a better way that fits everyone’s needs.

    I just made 150 or so of these–but my recipe calls for 1 3/4 cups.

      There are many different recipe versions out there – I like this one because it doesn’t call for shortening. 150 is a lot!!!
