Peanut Butter Crackles

Peanut butter crackles are one of my favorite holiday treats! They’re rather quick and easy, and super yummy!

So, when my daughter starting looking for recipe ideas for the farmers market, this was one of the first ones she made!

The most important part of this recipe is to make sure that you top the cookies as soon as they come out of the oven. If you don’t, then the kisses won’t stick to the cookie and they will literally fall right off!
