A classic Wilson family holiday cookie traditionally made with Hershey’s kisses but made with peanut butter cups for ease in cookie tins for shipment and cookie swaps.
This dough can be made ahead and frozen for up to two weeks. I like to portion the prepared dough into balls for baking (not yet rolled in sugar), and freeze until solid on a baking sheet. Once frozen, store in a zip lock bag. I like to thaw the dough balls in the refrigerator overnight before baking though you can bake them from frozen for an additional 3 or so minutes (just keep a keen eye).
