What is the best way to store leftover kiss cookies?

You will need to place the cookies into an airtight container. Leaving them at room temperature is ok if you plan on eating them quickly. Placing it in the fridge will allow for longer shelf life, so I recommend placing it in the fridge.

Do I need to chill the kiss cookie dough?

No, this recipe does not have you chill the dough before baking. Chilling the cookie dough is beneficial. Putting the dough in the fridge to chill will allow the dough to be easier to mold and not be as sticky.

    I made these, adding 3 Tablespoons cocoa powder and 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil for a nice chocolate taste. I added it when I mixed in the eggs and milk, etc. Very good!

  2. I just made these.  They are delicious however my strawberry kisses melt flat.  It does say to remove from oven and immediately put the kiss on.  I waited a few minutes on the 2nd pan but they melted also.  

    1. I recently learned that if you freeze the kisses before putting them on it does the trick, I tried it and can verify it works!

    The dough went together great…but after following the directions I realized it never called for the milk so I didn’t use it…did I miss something?  They look adorable

    This is the second time Ive made these cookies. The first time was for a family get together they all loved them. I’m making them again for family 4th picnic. I only had one problem the recipe calls for 2 Tablespoons of milk but in the instructions it never says when to add it. I’m making a double batch this time so hoping 4Tabs won’t be too much. Kisses were hard to find had to order from amazon.
