    Mommy Diva's Note:

    Another favorite from Betty Crocker that I have made for at least 15-20 years now. ;) A great addition to any cookie tray or for a cookie exchange! Try the Hershey Kiss tip at the bottom too for a great crowd pleaser!

    8. 8
      Place approximately 2-3 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet, sugar side up.
    9. 9
      Lightly press a dinner fork flat across each ball twice to make a criss cross pattern.
    10. 10
      Sprinkle flattened dough with light amount of sugar to "dust" the criss cross.
    11. 11
      Bake 9 to 10 minutes, until cookies are light brown.
    12. 12
      Allow cookies to cool for 2 minutes before removing from tray.

      Enjoy! ;).
    14. 14
      TIP- another idea is to press a Hershey's kiss into the middle of each ball prior to baking instead of flattening it with a fork for a "Peanut Butter Kiss". ;) Kids love these!

      Our batch spread out a little more than we expected during baking, and I have to try this again to make sure I had the proportions right. First we have to eat the first batch... you're right, it's an excuse. These cookies are delicious! Made for the OZ/NZ swap 20, Sept 2008.

      These are wonderful cookies. I've made them using a similar recipe, but these were really good! I used a creamy peanut butter and I also placed a hershey's kiss in the center after baking. They turned out moist and tasty.
