       Yield: 60 cookies
  
       1 ea 12oz pkg chocolate chips
            -semi-sweet
     1/4 c  Butter or margarine
       1 cn Condensed milk, sweetened
       2 c  Unbleached or all purpose
            -flour
     1/2 c  Nuts, finely chopped (opt)
       1 ts Vanilla
      60 ea Candy kisses, chocolate
            -SEE OPTIONS
       2 oz White baking bar or vanilla
            -flavored candy coating
       1 ts Shortening or oil
  
   OPTIONS FOR CHOCOLATE KISSES: 1. If you like caramel
   centers, take 3oz of Kraft
      Caramels and add 1TB of water, heat until melted.
      Pour onto a plate so the mix will make a thin, 1/4
      layer, place in FREEZER until it is hard.  Then,
      when dough is ready, remove the hardened caramel
      from the freezer, cut small strips 1/2 wide of the
      caramel.  Cut these into 1/2 bits, place in center
      of cookie dough and roll -- make certain dough
      completely surrounds the caramel.  It will run out
      if not completely enclosed.  Still good eatin',
      just not as pretty. 3 oz will do two recipes
      probably. 2. Get bite size Reese Peanut Butter
   Cups, cut into 2
      pieces, and do same as above. 3. In place of (2),
   use crunchy peanut butter, using
      the BACK of a 1/4 t to touch into the peanut butter
      and get a dab to place on the cookie dough before
      rolling.  Back of spoon allows peanut butter to be
      wiped onto the dough. Using inside spoon did not
      work for me.  Hard to get out. Try it yourself.
      Peanut butter has stronger flavor than the Reeses
      Cups, so only a dab is needed. 4. I like mint
   chocolate. Found some Mintohs at
      Kroger.  These are for candy making, baking, etc.,
      Light mint flavor.  Size of a quarter.  Place one
      of these in the dough in place of other options.  I
      tried the chocolate covered peppermint candy that
      is foil wrapped.  It was TOO strong a mint.
      Overpowering.  But that is my taste. Heat oven to
   350. In medium sauacepan, combine chocolate chips &
   butter, cooking & stirring over very low heat until
   chips are melted & smooth. Add sweetened condensed
   milk & mix well.
   
   Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup & level off.
   Combine flour & nuts ~if using- in medium mixing bowl,
   add chocolate mixture and vanilla and mix well.  Shape
   1 scant TB of dough around each candy kiss, covering
   completely.  Place on ungreased cookie sheet, 1
   apart. Bake 6 to 8 minutes.  SEE NOTE 2 jgb

   The remainder of the recipe directions was to remove
   the cookies, even though then appear to be soft and
   glisten. They will hrden. When cool, heat vanilla
   flavored candy coating and the oil, drizzle over
   cookies. This is the Pillsbury cookoff winner, and I
   posted it before. The options I have played with.
   They work.  Good fun to all. Jerry G. Brewster, MPHS,

   Dee I have 7 recipes to post for you. The first 3 are
   sugar cookies. Important to remember is to follow
   instructions exactly and if the recipe calls for
   chilling the dough be sure to do that.
