    We love these. I have been making these at Christmas for about 20 yrs.:) The boys love them and the neighbors do as well.:) They are delicious and look really impressive on the cookie tray- like a peanut-butter flower.:)

    Peanut-Butter Kisses

    1 jar (18 oz.) creamy peanut butter
    1 1/4 cups sugar
    2 lg. eggs
    48 milk-chocolate Kisses, ( a 9 ox. pkg. contains 53)

    Unwrap 48 kisses.:) Heat oven to 350 degrees. Have cookie sheets ready. With a wooden spoon stir peanut butter, sugar and eggs in a medium-size bowl. (Dough will be slightly sticky.) With floured hands, roll level measuring tablespoonfuls into 1 1/4 inch balls. Place 1 1/2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 12-14 minutes until cookies look dry with tops crackled. Remove from oven and immediately press a chocolate Kiss in center of each. Cool on cookie sheet 1 to 2 minutes, then remove to wire racks to cool completely. Makes 48. Calories per cookie: 111, 3 g. protein, 5 g. fat.

    Enjoy!

    Yes, I'm trying to get an early start because my Mondays are so busy!

    This is a favorite holiday treat at my house. I got the recipe from a friend in SC who brought it to a cookie swap, and have been making it myself ever since. I usually only make it at Christmas, but it's easy enough to fix anytime.

    My only change from the original recipe is that I use the microwave instead of a double boiler. I know that all of you creative cooks will come up with some interesting variations and I can't wait to see them!


    Rocky Road Squares

    12 oz. chocolate chips
    1 can sweetened condensed milk
    2 Tbsp. butter or margarine
    2 c. dry roasted peanuts
    2 c. miniature marshmallows

    Combine chocolate chips, condensed milk and butter in large microwave-safe bowl. Cover with wax paper and heat for 1-2 minutes, until chocolate and butter are melted. Stir to mix. Fold nuts and marshmallows into chocolate mixture. Spread in wax-paper-lined 9x13 pan. Chill at least 2 hours. Remove from pan and peel off paper. Cut into squares. (This is rich so you can cut small pieces and get a lot from one batch.)


    Enjoy, and happy holiday cooking! Thanks to everyone for helping to keep this bumped through the week.

    RASPBERRY STRIPPERS
    (From Cooking Light)

    1/3 cup granulated sugar
    5 tbsp butter or stick margarine, softened
    1-1/2 tsp vanilla extract
    1 large egg white (I used the whole egg)
    1 cup all purpose flour
    2 tbsp cornstarch
    1/4 tsp baking powder
    1/4 tsp salt
    Cooking spray
    1/3 cup raspberry or apricot preserves (or one of your choice)
    1/2 cup powdered sugar
    2 tsp fresh lemon juice
    1/4 tsp almond or vanilla extract

    1. Preheat oven to 375.
    2. Beat granulated sugar and butter with a mixer at medium speed until well blended, about 5 minutes. Add 1-1/2 tsp vanilla and egg white; beat well. Lightly spoon the flour into a dry measuring cup, then level with a knife. Combine flour, cornstarch, baking powder, and salt, stirring until well blended. (Dough will be stiff)
    3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide dough in half. Roll each portion into a 12-inch log. Place logs 3 inches apart on a baking sheet covered with cooking spray. Form a 1/2 inch deep indentation down the center of each log using your index finger or end of a wooden spoon. Spoon preserves into the center. Bake at 375 for 20 minutes or until lightly brown. Remove logs to cutting board.
    4. Combine powdered sugar, lemon juice, and almond extract; stir well with a whisk. Drizzle sugar mixture over warm logs. Immediately cut each log diagonally into 12 slices. (Do not separate slices) Cool 10 minutes; separate slices. Transfer to wire rack. Cool completely. Yield: 2 dozen (serving size: 1 cookie)

    SOUR CREAM SUGAR COOKIES (PREFERRED)
    (From Pat Cummings)

    2-3/4 cup sifted flour
    3/4 tsp soda
    1 tsp cream of tarter
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
    1/2 cup soft butter
    1 cup sugar
    1 egg
    1/2 cup sour cream

    Cream the butter, sugar, egg, sour cream until well mixed. Add dry ingredients; mix well. Cover and chill. On floured surface, roll out to 1/8 inch and cut. Bake 6-8 minutes on an ungreased cookie sheet at 400 degrees.
    At Christmas time, I color melted white chocolate with red or green food coloring and dip half of the cooked cookie in it. Alternatively, leave as white chocolate and roll in crushed candy canes. In addition, you can use melted semi-sweet melted chocolate.
