I love these cookies as does my entire family. I make a triple batch of them! I do a little different than the recipe. Instead of white sugar I use 1c brown, 1c confectioner's and 1c white with 3c peanut butter and 3 eggs. I like that the brown sugar gives them a little chewiness and the confectioner's cuts the white sugar so you don't get any gritty texture at all in these. It also stiffens the dough so they don't spread. You can do them with more confectioner's sugar if you like a really solid cookie. I also use a small scoop to form these and just put the flat side down on the cookies sheet-no rolling and rolling! Enjoy! Read More

Use the recipe on the back of the Hershey Kisses bag - it's MUCH better. Read More

ExCELLENT. I took the advice of the first reviewer and used brown sugar white sugar and the powdered sugar. OMG...these melt in your mouth. very chewy and awesome. they dont spread much at all. I have always had problems with peanut butter cookies spreading. By using the combination of sugars it made them not spread all over and chewy. great consistency. loved them. glad I used the advice of the reviewer. Read More

Delicious! I added 1/4 cup of flour to make it more chewy and the cookies came out great. I'd definitely make this again. Read More

This was a great recipe to make with my toddlers! I was a total skeptic about the final result but they turned out yummy. Somehow ours made a lot more than the recipe said we ended up with 21 big ones & 21 bite sized ones. For the little ones we put a chocolate chip in the middle instead of a kiss. They are the perfect size for my 2 year old! The kids enjoyed measuring mixing and rolling these into balls. We rolled them in sugar for added calories (well mostly for appearance). One slight change I made was to take the pan out 2 minutes early put the chocolate on and then finish baking. Very kid friendly & yummy recipe! Very very little clean-up which is a HUGE plus!

HELPFUL TIPS IF YOU'RE IN A RUSH: I love this recipe! It looks elegant & best of all...tastes great! You really should unwrap the kisses ahead of time & keep them in freezer while the cookie bakes to eliminate them melting and looking yucky. I also put the entire tray of cookies in the fridge for a bit after I've put the hershey kiss on top to help them set. UPDATE: Okay life gets busy!!! I am all about making everything from scratch (heck we make our own bread in this house) but with a zoo-filled household sometimes I like to cheat. Betty Crocker has little packages next to their cake mixes for peanut butter cookies (comes in red plastic). You just add water mix and bake. Well they turn out identical AND hold together WAY BETTER the days after (you just have to add the kiss in the middle). A lot quicker if you want to double the recipe too. Makes a bunch and they can be stored at room temp whereas sometimes these don't always have thee same consistency several days after. Just an idea for those in a rush!!! Read More

With so little ingredients it is amazing how good these cookies are. I did use chunky peanut butter in one batch and they were even better than the original. Read More

this is an incredible cookie. We found the recipe in a old old newspaper. They used the flat chocolate stars instead of the hesheys kisses. We love it with the star chocolates. A must try cookie either way!!!!!!!! Read More
