*** UPDATE: Made these last night so we had some cookies to give to Santa Clause tonight. Couple of changes. First, I used a small cookie scoop and skipped the rolling them into a ball step. Next I just sprinkled sugar on top instead of rolling them in sugar. Lastly, I baked them for 10 minutes, pulled them out of the oven and stuck the Hershey Kiss into the center and put them on a cooling rack. I didn't bake for 8 and then return to the oven for another 3....We like it when the kiss still looks like a kiss. Not sure if my oven temp is correct, but next time I'm going to cook for 9 minutes total...they came out a little too "crispy" for me but still very very good!**** These were very YUMMY! DH loved them and ate them all (okay, I had my fair share too). He loves these cookies at xmas time so I've added them to my holiday cookie list. Very easy to make. Thanks!
