Guess what I've been doing lately???
Just a little baking...
Peanut blossoms are one of my all-time favorite cookies! This recipe is a winner with my husband who doesn't even like sweets! Yesterday I made 4 dozen of these scrumptious cookies. Instead of using regular old Hershey kisses, we used the mint truffle kisses. This was a perfect way to add a holiday twist to an old favorite.
And how about those yummy candy cane kisses?! They are my absolutely favorites! These are a hit with the kids, too! This year, I don't have time to fuss over gourmet recipes... so I'm just sprucing up an oldie but a goodie! They turned out scrumptious! I don't want to admit how many I ate yesterday afternoon!
