“Although I use a different recipe when making peanut blossom cookies, here's another that has a similar taste, but uses jelly instead of a chocolate kiss. For variation, you could substitute half kisses/half jelly on these. Taken from An added note: I have found this cookie does not keep well. Make only if the cookies can be eaten in a day or so.”
36-48 cookies
