Peanut Butter Chocolate Kiss Cookie Time!

Christmas is going BIG this year! Last year was a BUST with all of our moving.  This year the tree--yes, ARTIFICAL (gasp, but we have allergies and can't "do" and real tree)--was up two weeks before Thanksgiving.  Last year it was up a week after Thanksgiving and down the day after Christmas.  It was sucky.  Yes.  Sucky.

Tree later.

Today.  Peanut Butter Chocolate Kiss Cookies!


I just used recipe from the of the JIF Peanut Butter Jar and turned the tray around about half way through baking and they come out beautifully!    I used butter because I don't have shortening in the house too.
