First of all, these are not for me -- not a huge peanut butter fan, but I did try one to make sure all was well. The cookie was so light I couldn't believe it! It was almost like a delectable crust of some sort, impressive to say the least. On the first batch I had unwrapped my chocolates ahead and was ready to go when they came out pipin' hot, but they were not sticking or melting to the cookie so I put them back in the oven for a 30 seconds or so. The second batch I cooked for 8 minutes since 9 was slightly too much for the first batch. On the last minute of cooking the second batch, I opened the oven and dropped the chocolates in place. By the time I had dropped all 12 in, it was time to remove and they were perfect. You definitely will not find these cookies in the grocery store on the shelves or the bakery. If you have a peanut/chocolate lover like mine, they will very much appreciate a fresh batch of these! Thank you for a very nice recipe. :)

Better than store-bought! These tasted amazing and I would make them again in a heartbeat. After you place the Kisses, they won't be hard for a long time so remember that when you plate the cookies.

This is an excellent recipe. Don't overcook them - I pulled mine at about 7-8 mins, and after topping the cookies with a chocolate kiss put them back into the oven for just about 30 seconds. They came out perfect!

Excellent cookies. I used dark chocolate kisses and they were wonderful. DH prefers milk chocolate kisses.

These were so good! I made hearts out of mine, just formed the dough with my fingers before placing it on the cookie sheet. A side note, I will make them a little smaller next time! When I put them on the cookie sheet I thought they would be the size i wanted (small) but the dough spreads out a good amount!!! These were still so simple and very yummy!

We had a ton of leftover chocolate eggs from Easter, so I sliced them in half to use on these cookies. Turned out perfect. I will say that I overcooked them a bit waiting for them to get "lightly browned" but learned quickly that it was too long. Thanks!
