Peanut Blossoms

"A delicious peanut butter cookie topped with a Hershey's kiss. This recipe came from my childhood neighbor, Mrs. Virginia Texeira, of West Covina, California. (NOTE: "Bite-sized Chocolate Chips" are Food.com's way of identifying Hershey's kisses, which add 22 calories each.)"

  1. I have used this recipe my whole life. It is my old standby recipe for peanut blossoms and these are always the first cookies I make every Christmas. The problem is, they seem to disappear as soon as I get them out of the oven!!
