I first tasted this tasty little surprise cookie more than 30 years ago, and just had to have the recipe, it was given to me by a coworker, and it has been one of our family favorites ever since. Imagine biting into a buttery flakey cookie filled with chopped walnuts, and then getting a bite of chocolate, from the chocolate Hershey's Kiss. It is quite good. Now there are other flavors, so try a variety of kisses. I am sure you will be just as impressed as I was the first time I had them.
