"So easy and tasty too. I got this recipe from my mother in law years ago. I prefer them without the kisses however they are good with or without them."

Thanks for sharing this awesome cookie recipe. It was a nice change from the peanut blossoms. The only change that I made was that I used milk chocolate almond kisses. I entered these cookies in our local newspaper's Christmas Cookie contest and got second place!

can you help me out with the equivalent of "all purpose" flour. I'm in New Zealand and am familiar with our plain-(standard and high grade),and self raising. as there is no baking powder in your recipe I'm presuming maybe mistakenly that it is self raising flour thats used.but perhaps the baking soda is taking the place of baking powder?(raising agent).I would love to try this recipe but the correct ingredients are essential and I wouldn't want to spoil it for the want of using the "correct grade" flour.HELP! :-) I'll be happy to post the result after "the event" but I love the sound of "almond" one of my favourite flavours and sounds like a 5 to me :-)

These were wonderful. I found Hershey's dark chocolate kisses and used those. The flavors of almond, dark chocolate and raspberry went so well together. These did not last long in my house.
