Norma's Marshmallow Peanut Butter Blossoms

One of my daughters favorite cookies at Christmas time is my peanut butter cookies with a chocoate kiss on top. Well I'm still going to make those, but last year I thought a way to alter them just a little by using marshmallows on my second batch of cookies. I also thought of saving some time and used a package of refrigerated cookie dough. They tured out really good and didn't last long with the youngsters and adults also.
