Christmas baking wouldn’t be the same without Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies. As these are one of my personal favorites I always make a double batch because they tend to disappear way too quick. This cookie recipe comes from my mother as well. If you’d like to read more about our family tradition of the mass amounts of Christmas goodies that we make each year, check out our Russian Tea Cakes.

Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies are definitely not only a Christmas cookie. The blend of peanut butter and chocolate makes a perfect cookie any time of the year in my book (my kid’s books as well!) I seriously hope you get the chance to devour your own batch of these soft, chewy, melt-in-your-mouth right out of the oven little piece of heaven whatever time of the year it may be.
