grandma's cookbook - Surprise Inside Cookies!

Friday I shared a tasty cookie recipe with you for Peanut-Butter Cup Cookies (you'll find them at this link). I wanted to make some with my grandsons, but I didn't have any peanut-butter cups, so I decided to make cookies using chocolate kisses instead!

As I started adding my ingredients, I discovered I only had half the amount of peanut-butter my recipe called for!!! I looked through my cupboards and discovered a jar of chocolate-hazelnut deliciousness from Jiff and decided to substitute this for the remaining amount I needed of peanut-butter. The end result is a cookie which is sooo soft and tasty!!!

I used the Peanut-Butter Blossom cookie recipe in my Better Homes and Garden's Cookbook, but this one I found from the Hershey's kitchen is very similar (you'll find it at this link). I'd substitute butter for the shortening and if you want to try adding the chocolate-hazelnut, put in half of the amount of peanut-butter the recipe calls for and use the chocolate-hazelnut for the remainder. Refrigerate your mixed cookie dough for one hour and then put a chocolate kiss in the middle of each cookie; cover with more dough; seal the kiss in the dough and bake for ten minutes. When the cookies come out of the oven, flatten the kiss a bit! Cool and enjoy!

Have you ever made cookies with chocolate-hazelnut spread before?
