“This is a nice change from the usual peanut butter cookie,” notes Anna Mary Knier of Mount Joy, Pennsylvania. “Children really enjoy unwrapping the kisses,” she adds.
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1/2 cup shortening
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2-1/4 cups quick-cooking oats
- 1 cup chopped nuts
- 72 milk chocolate kisses
- In a large bowl, cream the butter, shortening and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in oats and nuts. Roll into 1-in. balls. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets.
- Bake at 375° for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Immediately press a chocolate kiss in the center of each cookie. Remove to wire racks. Yield: 6 dozen.

"Easy and yummy. Didn't have the nuts so added a bit more oatmeal, and they were great :)"
