This classic and traditional cookie I've been eating for years but believe it or not had never made them till this summer as a request for my friend Tynesha's son KaDale's graduation party 2014. I do think they were more for her husband Brian who loves them dearly. lol
Anyway, I couldn't believe how easy these cookies are to make. Not to mention, they are fun & pretty too. Now, I checked some of the recipes on Just a Pinch for these cookies and the ingredients had been altered. I decided to post Hershey's recipe as is...because it was a perfect recipe that didn't need tweaked for me.

6Bake 8 to 10 minutes....I take mine out as soon as I see a few cracks on the side of the cookies which is 8 to 9 minutes. Immediately remove from oven and place your kisses down in the center firmly but gently and quickly. Once you add the kiss the cookies crack on the sides a little but that's what they are supposed to do. Remove from pan on to a cooling rack. ---- I do not grease cookie pans anymore but ALWAYS USE parchment paper.
