    I really liked that this was a butter not the regular shortening recipe. I followed the recipe exactly and found the cooking time a bit too long. I also had way more kisses left over even though I made really small balls. Next time I'll try doubling the dough and cooking 6 min instead. Still a good recipe.

    I found the cookie dough to be a bit dry. I added an egg and a full jar (16.3 oz) of creamy peanut butter.

    This is the first time I've made this cookie although I have had them often. They were easy to make and tasted just great. I am going to try to freeze some and see how that goes. We ran out of kisses (I made a double batch and only had 11oz. of kisses) so we finished the rest off with mini reese's peanut butter cups. Those were so good I am going to use them next time. MMMmmmm!

    We have been making these for years on our Christmas cookie trays. They are always well received by all!

    These were very good. I had a hard time not overcooking though. Mine only needed 5 min and then 1 min. Thanks for the recipe.


I currently reside in a quaint little town on Lake Erie. I spend most of my time caring for my three children (DH,DS,DD). My love of cooking comes from my deeply rooted southern upbringing. I love to entertain and people enjoy my vittles.
