Any treat made with the combination of peanut butter and chocolate is usually a huge hit with my husband and son. This recipe is from my mom. It's easy and delicious! A great recipe if you need a quick yummy treat...and it only has 3 ingredients! You probably have all of them in your kitchen right now!!
Here's what ya need:
18 oz of peanut butter (no, not the fat free or low fat kind--- the cookie won't hold together, I've tried it..it's a greasy mess- skippy works best)
1 1/4 cups of suger
Hershey kisses- around 48 (I can't believe that I'm writing this but...take them out of the foil -haha)
Preheat oven to 350
Mix peanut butter, eggs and sugar until ingredients are combined.
Make 1 inch balls and place on cookie sheet or stone. (I love my pizza stone, I think my cookies turn out best when I use it!) This recipe makes about 48 cookies (more or less).
Bake for about 12 minutes. Take out of oven and place a hershey kiss on each dough ball and push down. The dough will crack a little.
Then use a spatula to take off of the cookie sheet and place on a cooling rack :)

This year I'll be making those, plus a few others... definitely going with a caramel nut, some biscotti (another one of my favs), the greek cookies (buttery half moon shaped cookie with a walnut in the middle coated in powdered sugar), sugar cookies and few others that I'll post the recipes for.
What cookies are you baking this year???
If you are looking for an easy Royal Frosting Recipe... here's my favorite! (slightly adapted from sweetopia) :)
1 bag of powdered sugar (2 lb bag)
3 tablespoons of meringue powder
1/2 teaspoon of cream of tartar
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1/3- 1/2 cup of water.. to start probably a little more
Put everything into your mixer, start off with a 1/3 cup of water and let mix. You might have to add more water. I usually add as needed.
Let it mix for about ten minutes.
It should look light and fluffy.
Go from there with your colors and add water to get the consistency you need for filling your outlines. :)
Time to get my bake on and get those cookie dough's started!! Check back for my favorite christmas cookie recipes soon! :)
