Christmas Kiss Cookies

Ever since I was little, these have been my absolute favorite Christmas cookies! I’ve tasted a few other recipes, and they just don’t compare. Throw out your old recipe, you won’t need it anymore!

It’s a tradition: my mom and I turn on the Christmas music, put on red and green sweaters, and make these wonderful cookies! It’s the same way we’ve made them every year since I can remember!

To make 5-6 dozen cookies (you may want to double the recipe if you’re planning on sharing!), you’ll need:

2 1/2 Cups Flour

2 Teaspoons Baking Soda

1 Teaspoon Salt

1 Cup Shortening

1 Cup Peanut Butter

1 Cup Sugar

1 Cup Packed Brown Sugar

2 Eggs

4 Tablespoons Milk

2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract

Red and Green Sugar

Hershey Kisses

Next, mix normal white sugar with red and green sugar on separate plates. It’s tempting to want all colored sugar, but it really tastes better with normal white sugar too!

Shape the dough into balls, roll in the sugar, and place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
