THESE ARE FANTASTIC COOKIES, SO EASY TO MAKE!

These were pretty good. They are chewy and pretty to look at. They taste good with or without the chocolate on them. I didn't have any kisses and so I put three milk chocolate chips on each. ...

Really simple to make and everyone loved them. I will be making them at Christmas from now on and on other special occasions.

This is a traditional classic.

An easy recipe. We love'em
