  1. Hi LeAnn. That could be it. I love using butter in all my cookies! I miss my grandma too! Happy Holidays! -Amy

  2. Amy, I need your opinion on something if you have time. For some reason my Peanut Butter Kiss cookies always seem to get hard so quick even when I underbake them. I just noticed the only difference in our recipes is mine calls for 1/2 cup shortening. This is an old family recipe but think I’ll try yours. Do you think the shortening is causing me a problem? Grandma is no longer around to ask…thanks much!
