With Thanksgiving behind us, thoughts have turned to Christmas. What would Christmas be without cookies?

For a while, my husband had an obsession with those little Hershey’s Drops. He goes in phases with his candy obsessions ;-) so when that phase ended, there were a few bags left in the cabinet.

When I made these, it didn’t take long for them to fly off the plate. Everyone here loves my soft and chewy peanut butter cookies so I knew they wouldn’t last! You might also want to try my Nutella Peanut Butter Cookies and these Snickers Peanut Butter Cookies if you loved the stuffed cookie route!

After you’ll mixed up the dough, roll a piece in your hands a moment, then flatten it in your palm. Place a Hershey’s Drop candy in the center of the cookie dough.

Bake for 7 to 9 minutes, or until set and just beginning to brown. DO NOT OVERBAKE. Cookies will appear puffy when they come out of the oven and will relax and sink a little as they cool.

    These look awesome! I make snickerdoodles with rolo candies and toffee chips in them that are similar to this. I can’t wait to try this one!
