Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies from Chef-in-Training

As the unpacking frenzy is still happening over here, I’ve arranged for a fabulous week of guest bloggers! Each of these ladies is a super-amazing blogger with her own unique dessert “style.”
I couldn’t be more excited to start the week off with Nikki from Chef-in-Training! She’s amazingly talented– as I’m sure you already know. Thanks for visiting Something Swanky, Nikki!
*****************
I am SO excited to be here visiting at Something Swanky today. Ashton has become such a great friend of mine through this crazy blogging experience. She is so sweet and such a fabulous baker! 
First, I will tell you a little about myself. My name is Nikki, and I blog over at Chef in Training. I am married to my best friend and am a stay-at-home mom to two wonderful kids. Like most moms, wives, and people out there, I am a “Chef in Training”, teaching myself how to cook one recipe at a time. I LOVE being in the Kitchen and have a great love for good food! 
Since I am busy with two young children, I know what its like to be running low on time. I also know how important it is to eat meals together as a family. My blog is filled with recipes that are easy, simple and that anyone can do.
When I graduated high school, my grandma gave me two GIANT cookbooks filled with family recipes that she typed up and made HERSELF. These cookbooks have been a treasure of gold to me not only because the recipes are amazing, but also because I know how much time went into putting them together. Today, I am going to share a recipe that comes from one of those cookbooks.
These Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies are such a classic recipe, but I tell you what, I have yet to find a peanut butter cookie recipe I like better :)
