These are so delicious!! The cookie itself is so sweet but I love the hugs on them. I followed the recipe exact.

I made these for a Christmas party at work. They were okay. I prepared them exactly as the recipe stated. I found that they really didn't have much of a gingerbread taste and I'm not sure that the white/milk chocolate candies were the right candy for the top. The cookies that were left at home hung around for a few weeks after Christmas too.

Great recipe. They're equally good without the kisses as plain gingerbread cookies.

My favorite Christmas cookie this year! I made exactly as written and the recipe only gave me about 45 cookies but they were fantastic! A nice change from the peanut butter blossoms. Thanks.

These had a different spiciness to them than the soft gingersnaps I always make from this site. These looked lovely, but I myself didn't love it. Maybe it was the white chocolate kiss. I will make them again, may try a caramel kiss like another reviewer suggested.

I made these for my daughter's class. She wanted peanut blossoms, but due to a peanut allergy, she couldn't bring them in. They tasted great! I would even eat them without the hug as a plain gingerbread cookie. The only problem I had was with the baking time. They needed quite a bit more time. This could also be due to the fact that I used airbake cookie sheets.

I prefer without the chocolate

Wow! Yummy! I only had unbleached wheat flour and these still tasted good. We also didn't have the striped kisses so I used caramel - delicious :)
