    sometimes I use chunky PB in my cookies, they taste great.
    Do you think it would be ok to use it in these cookies, and can you put a candy kiss on this cookie if you don’t flatten the cookie before its baked

    Great recipe! After reading the reviews I added some chocolate chips to half of the batter. Since I used salted butter I used less salt. I made did for my 23 year granddaughter. Her response was a yum yum dance!
