Hershey Kiss Peanut Butter Blossom Recipe

I made these delish cookies this weekend. Kevin was mentioning last week how these were his favorite and the next day on the plane I was catching up on my Martha Stewarts and the recipe was in it. It was a sign that I had to make these for him and to have at the house for when guests stop by during the holidays!
