  1. Wonderful!! I used a stick of butter flavor crisco in place of the butter and they turned out great!
  2. YUM! Thank you! Rolled in sugar before baking.
  3. These are wonderful cookies. I used margarine instead of butter, because I was trying to cut down the cost. I enjoyed them and so did every neighbor who got them on their Christmas Plate this year. Thanks for an easy recipe!
  4. These turned out great! I used the recipe for Christmas cookies and got plenty to go around for all. I rolled the balls in sugar in the raw before adding the kiss, for a extra holiday touch.
  5. These came out great! Made them a bit large this time so only got 30. Will make them smaller next time. The dough was on the soft side, so I put 1 tray in the fridge and the other in the freezer for 30 minutes before baking. The freezer ones had more cracks in them, the others came out pretty smooth. Taste and spread were about the same.


  1. I followed the recipe all except for the vanilla. I cut the vanilla in half and and used rum instead. The cooking time was a bit off, but all in all this is a great cookie.
  2. This is such a pretty little cookie! Since there are a few similar recipes posted I wasn't sure which one to try, but I am glad I chose this one. I switched the amounts for the butter and peanut butter since we love peanut butter. They turned out marvelous. I like that this recipe makes so many cookies. I used chocolate rosettes in place of the Hershey kisses and when I ran out of them, I simply mixed chocolate chips into the remaining batter. Thx MizzNezz.

After DH and I moved away from the farm, and to the city...I haven't done as much cooking and very little canning. But I do come to Zaar and look for new recipes once in a while. I'm still cooking Zaar!! I like to play at Facebook, with my family and friends. A lot of my Zaar friends are there!! Yay! It's a good way to keep in touch. We travel more. We're looking at the European trips now. Hope to go in the springtime. I really want to see London, I think I lived there in a past life, I've been obsessed with it since I was 10 years old!!
