Today I'm going back to a classic, to one of the cookies I must have on my holiday baking list yearly. It's just simply not Christmas until these cookies are made. Peanut Butter Blossoms remind me of being a kid. I remember helping my mom unwrap all the kisses and then waiting for the cookies to come out of the oven so we could quickly press them into the warm, gooey cookies. Is there anything better than biting into that soft Hershey's Kiss and then it mixing with the salty peanut butter cookie? Is there anything better than the peanut butter/chocolate combination period? I'd be willing to say there isn't, but that's just my own personal opinion.
Want me to let you in on a secret? I don't do anything special for these cookies. In fact, I take the recipe straight off the back of the Hershey's Kiss bag. That doesn't mean these cookies aren't fantastic, because they are! The recipe is pretty easy and basic and my other Peanut Butter Cookies are just too good by themselves to throw a kiss on top of, honestly.

*Tip: I never actually get 48 cookies out of this recipe. And I always unwrap 48 Kisses before I start baking. I'm giving you a heads up so that maybe I'll remember next year. I'd start with 30 Kisses, then open more as the last batch or two is baking.
