Easy Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies

November 28, 2012 by 6 Comments

Baking easy peanut butter kiss cookies is the perfect way to kick off the Christmas Season, right.  I overheard a mom at pickup telling her friend that she was in the mood for baking and she’d been baking all sorts of goodies, but sadly she doesn’t enjoy sweets so it sits on her counter.  Her friend recommended gifting it to the neighbors….if that neighbor were me, I can guarantee the sweets wouldn’t be sitting on my counter for long…I’m just not one of those girls!

Easy Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies only call for four ingredients, a little mixing, and a little baking.  The embellishment of a chocolate kiss is added shortly after the peanut butter cookies have been removed from the oven.

Okay, time for a vote…what goes better together!?! 

Peanut Butter and Chocolate  – OR – Peanut Butter and Jelly!?!

    Chocolate and peanut butter has my vote! I have been baking peanut butter kisses over the past twenty Christmases. It has been and still is the #1 favorite cookie of my three children who are all 30 somethings now.
