I like to bring baked goods to work for the team. Sometimes I do it to get some feedback on a new recipe, sometimes were having a bake sale, maybe to be festive for an event we have going on…. and then other times it’s just because.

Do you ever make just because cookies? Just because you’re in the mood for cookies, but you justify making a batch by saying you’re doing it for other people?

Well sometimes I make these cookies just because I am in the mood for a sweet, peanut butter treat with a soft, slightly melted chocolate kiss in the middle.

This is one of those “no fuss” cookie recipes, where if you own an electric mixer and a cookie scoop, you don’t even have to put much effort in. They’re always a crowd pleaser, and you can dress them up with colored sugar or different kinds of Hershey’s Kisses if you really want to get snazzy.
