Don’t forget to enter the 12 Days of Cookies FREE GIVEAWAY DRAWING!

On my last trip to the supermarket, baking chips were “Buy One, Get One Free.” Why, yes please! Here at Crowded Earth Kitchen, we stocked up and began experimenting with recipes. Double Peanut Butter Chocolate Kiss Cookies were a big winner. They’re packed with yummy peanut butter flavor, and incorporating mini Hershey’s Kisses offers a bigger punch of chocolate flavor than plain ol’ chocolate chips. This recipe makes a HUGE batch – perfect for cookie exchanges, sharing with friends, or freezing in snack bags for school lunches. Enjoy!

Step 1) Using an electric mixer, cream together peanut butter, butter, and sugars. Add eggs and almond extract. Blend well.
