Classic Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies - #fbcookieswap
This is my most favorite of all of the Christmas cookies. My grandma always made these for me so making them brings back so many wonderful memories. Because they are so near and dear to my heart I knew they would be perfect for this year's #FBCookieSwap to benefit Cookies for Kids' Cancer.

I baked and mailed this peanut butter and chocolate goodies to My Life as Robin's Wife, Melanie Makes and Heather Likes Food.

In return for shipping goodies, The Suburban Soapbox sent me the yummiest candy cane short breads, Food n' Focus sent Cranberry White Chocolate Cookies and Mama Plus One sent the most amazing biscotti.

I think there were over 400 bloggers who participated in the cookie swap so watch for round-ups of all the recipes. I can't wait for that biscotti recipe - best biscotti I've ever had!
