The best cookies you will ever have...guaranteed!

Much thanks to the Pioneer Woman and her absolutely awesome website! And thanks to my friend B for bringing this recipe to my attention. Why do I feel like I should be holding a trophy and wearing a gorgeous dress? I must say…THAT is how good these cookies are! Here is the original recipe on the Tasty Kitchen website. I omit a few things, though I have tried the original I believe it doesn’t need the chocolate chips or M&Ms that are added in the batter…and the chocolate drizzle is amazing but also isn’t necessary.

Forgotten Kiss Cookies

1 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
24+ Hershey Kisses, unwrapped

Beat together butter, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla. Slowly add flour and mix well. Form 1 inch balls around each kiss.

Bake 350° for 8-10 minutes. Cool 5 minutes on baking sheet then transfer to rack.

I have used milk chocolate kisses, caramel kisses and hugs! Yumo! My friend B also tried peppermint kisses and those were super yummy too!

I guarantee these will be a new family favorite. The first time I made them I had to make them again 2 days later because I wasn’t ready to live without them yet! Sad but true…
And if you have not checked out Pioneer Woman – Tasty Kitchen you must!
Happy baking!
