Forgotten Kiss Cookies

These cookies are bite-size bits of Heaven!
They call for mini chocolate chips in the dough,
But I live in the boonies and was out of mini chocolate chips.
I had a choice... use mini M&M's or driving to the city to buy the chocolate chips..
M&M's won!
And the Little-Foreman-in-Pink loves the "rainbow" look.

Just curious - why is it "forgotten" kiss?

- your spoiled rotten, "city girl", little sister

Bethany...
Because, unlike most cookies with kisses, you cannot see the kiss, it's not on top like usual. So... it'd tucked away inside a yummy crisp cookie and forgotten...

That sounds good right? cause I don't know! lol

Really cute idea.

Megan said...

Dana....
When are you going to publish a cookbook? I will be first in line to buy one! I have made many of your recipes and they are all FANTASTIC!

Something to think about? please

What a fun little surprise! I like it!

I made these, chocolate cherry cookies and the maple snickerdoodles, these were the ones they liked the most, though the chocolate cherry were a close second. It probably wasn't fair of me to have 2 chocolate cookies with the maple snickerdoodles, they didn't seem to get touched...I think most will choose a chocolate cookie.
I made these with the mini chocolate chips, I didn't have the m&m, though I like the color of yours better.

These look delicious! I'll have to make them one day! I've made a similar cookie using the medium sized toblerone bars, absolutely amazing!

dana u suckkkkkkkkk!!!!!!!

Dana said...

You asked a question, I answered it. What more do you want dear?

Oh I know! You need a reason for no eggs...
well..
A. This cookie recipe does not require eggs to rise.
You want a thin crisp cookie shell on your Kiss instead of a nice fluffy cookie.

B. This cookie does not need the additional binding qualities because the dough hold together fine on it's own.
Better?

Thats one of the unfortunate qualities of the internet...
the fact that we are forced to type in and visit websites written by people who we don't like.

Maybe someday this little world wide web will grow big enough to give us a choice of sites we would like to read.
Until then, I guess your forced to read mine.
Sorry.

I lurve you Dana! I'm bookmarking this for next time I'm in the mood to bake.

Poor anonymous, s/he's probably just upset that its lacking balls... if it had any, it would have left its name.

Chickenista said...

Wow what balls 'annoy'nomous has...No wait he/she doesn't other wise we'd see a name. What an idiot! Everyone your shit rocks Dana! Jealous people just make themselves look dumbass! They had nothing better to do than to start shit.... Get a life!! They're probably maxed out on their credit card and can't access porn anymore so they came to find excitement. LOL

Chickenista said...

I meant to say "everyone knows your shit rocks Dana" See I was so eager to push post, I didn't proof read LOL

Heathen's Hearth said...

Oh ps. I totally agree on the You Need to Write a Cookbook idea. You really should. :)

Cindy said...

I love your idea for these cookies-they look "fun" like a celebration in a cookie! My grandkids (all boys) will be making these for Santa because you can't forget to give "him" kisses! Happy Holidays. To everyone who supported Dana during that horrible anonymous posting, GOOD FOR YOU!
