Who Needs Mistletoe?!

  One of my family's long-standing Christmas cookie traditions is "Kiss Cookies". There is a variety of cookies we make every year around the holidays, and "Kiss Cookies" is always one of them. This is a basic peanut butter cookie that is rolled in sugar and topped with a Hershey's Kiss.
  I would recommend devouring as many of these delicious cookies as you can handle while they are warm from the oven. Once you've had your fill, they keep nicely for up to a week (I would recommend storing in a tin lined with parchment or wax paper) at room temperature, or several months in a Ziploc bag in the freezer.
  So, bake enough to have some now and later!

  I use the cookie recipe found here, but bake the cookies for about 12-14 minutes (Do not over-bake or they won't have a nice chewy center), then top each cookie (pressing lightly into the cookie) with a chocolate kiss, once removing the pan from the oven; remove cookies to a cooling rack to cool completely before storing.
