I have had this recipe for years and they are great. The only thing is if you over bake the cookies they will get really crunchy. But they are yummy and a real kid pleaser.

A classic!! These are so much fun for kids to make and it's such a crowd pleaser. I usually bake the cookies half way through and then place the chocolate kiss in the center. I place the cookies back in the oven for the last 2-3 minutes and the "kiss" stays in place. These are great ideas for get toghether and school/office functions.

I took this to a holiday cookie exchange: big hit! This was easy and even fun to make, and they look great too. I would recommend the Reese's brand peanut butter: it actually seemed to have less fat & sugar than most of the other brands.

Good cookies although I was looking for more peanut butter flavor to balance the chocolate.
