Recipe Diaries: Snapshot #22: Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies

June 23, 2010.  San Jose, California.  Home-made gifts can be some of the best kind.


  1. oh these are one of my favorite kind of cookies!!!! I only get them at Christmas time because my friend always makes them for our treat plates and I have never gotten the recipe because I just don't have the kind of will power to make them and not eat them all! Just noticed that San Hose is 19 degrees colder than Idaho right now how does that work?

  2. The infamous Sunny California gets it's reputation from the south (Los Angeles, Long Beach, Anaheim, etc.) Northern California, specifically the Bay Area is quite a different story. While it stays 'warm' year round, San Francisco only goes above 75 degrees 2% of the time. Mark Twain's famous quote, "The coldest winter I ever spent was the summer in San Francisco." San Jose doesn't get the fog like SF does, but the weather stays relatively mild year round.

    Bytheway, the "Peanut Butter Blossom" recipe is on the back of most Hershey Kisses bags.
