Oatmeal Kisses

Teresa Ambra
Oatmeal Kisses are such a delightful twist on the traditional Oatmeal Cookie. This delectable Oatmeal Cookie has just a hint of cinnamon. The Hershey's Kisses in the center of each cookie make these cookies spectacular. They're a chocolate lover's delight! Marvelous for holiday baking or Christmas Cookie Exchanges.
