These ARE delicious and soooo easy to make. I took them to a picnic this weekend and they didn't last at all. Thanks for sharing this. It's a keeper!

WARNING! The recipe can't be correct. I made these cookies and the flour to butter ratio isn't right. They need more flour! Anyway, made the cookies according to recipe and, while they actually tasted pretty good, they were way too flaky and delicate. I give them 3 stars for the taste only. The recipe is also not that easy. It's a bit of work getting the dough to roll around the hershey kisses when it's chilled.
