This is an answer to Jeanne. I'm not entirely sure why your kisses are falling off the cookies, but I'll venture a guess. I looked up this recipe because I lost my mother's copy. The one thing I see that is different between this one and what I remember of hers is that hers said that after you put the kisses on the tops and press down, you have to return the whole cookie sheet to the oven for 2 more minutes. I think this causes the kisses to melt into the cookie better. If this makes your cookies too dark, try cutting back on the original baking time a bit. Hope this helps. Molly

My favorite Christmas cookie! Question though... Why do you think my chocolate kisses fall off the cookies after they've cooled. I put them on as soon a s they come out of the oven and I press them in. Any thoughts? Merry Christmas!

Peanut Butter Cookies do not get any better than this! Geeeezzoo! These are fantastic! I've been making these for years. Made a batch 2 days ago, and hubby was mad they were all eaten before he could get anymore, and he does not care for cookies or desserts. Used crunchy peanut butter, and also used regular Kisses on half, other half used Kisses With Almonds. Outstanding. Anyone who has ever tried them has not been disappointed.

These cookies are a childhood (and adulthood) favorite of mine not just because they are delicious but because I grew up across the street from the daughter-in-law of the creator of this recipe. Mrs. Smith was my second mom and she learned from the best!

Megan, use cookie sheets lined with parchment paper. I began baking all cookies on parchment paper several years ago and found that it's the best way to make a perfect cookie with a lightly browned bottom. I also don't use dark colored cookie sheets. And don't over bake these! Hope this helps you!

I make these Every year for thanksgiving and then again for our christmas eve party for the family. I found that the kisses with the mint in the middle are a good hit as well as the cherry cordel they are fast and easy to make and my son can help out as well..

Agree with other reviewers - just the right amount of peanut butter taste. Only had crunchy style peanut butter and they still turned out good. Used Dove chocolate hearts and made for early Valentine's Day celebration. Thanks for the great recipe!

my daughter made these and she used the cherry chocolate kisses instead of regular chocolate kisses, OMG, that combination was incredible
