I’m sure you have tried these soft cookies since they are such a classic. Truth is, you can never go wrong with these for any event.

They can be used for a fancy gathering or something casual. They are also a great cookie to store in the freezer or to take to someone who needs a meal.

Tip: If you plan to freeze the cookies, place the Kiss inside the cookie dough before baking. Roll into a ball and sugar as normal. They won’t look as fancy, but the Kisses may come off during freezing otherwise.

If you’re a lover of peanut butter and chocolate, this Peanut Butter Blossom recipe should in your recipe box!

CAN I FREEZE THESE PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES?

Yes! These cookies freeze so well. So if you plan to make some for a party or gathering, you can make them a few weeks in advance and freeze them until the day of. 

You can freeze the cookies with the kiss on top, but be careful as sometimes the kisses come off after freezing. 

If you don’t care about presentation points, you can roll the chocolate kiss inside the dough before baking. That way the kiss will stay nice and secure inside!
