  7. Recipe Tips
  8. *The best way to make sure your cookies are soft and delicious is use two cookie sheets when baking, take cookies out as they just barely look done and let them sit on the cookie sheet while you fill up the next sheet with the new batch...once you are putting the new batch in the oven then transfer hot cookies to the cooling rack. The cookies will continue to cook on the hot cookie sheet and yet will remain soft when cooled down
  9. * Variation to this recipe is instead of flattening with fork, roll ball in sugar and bake until just lightly brown, immediately press hershey kiss in center of cookie
