Christmas Kiss Blossoms (without peanut butter)

Christmas Kiss Blossoms

A Cookie A Day Until Christmas
These cookies have been a tradition in my family since I can remember. I always remember going to my Grandma Jean’s house on Christmas Eve and having some Kiss Blossoms. My husband and I make these without peanut butter as our two young sons have allergies to peanuts. I hope you enjoy these as much as we do!

  • 2 tablespoons milk
