These cookies are about as classic as you can get outside of chocolate chip and sugar cookies. Hershey’s kisses sitting atop a soft bed of pillowy peanut butter send so many childhood memories flooding back.

Two holiday seasons ago, I made cranberry orange shortbread cookies that became fast favorites among my friends. They’re absolutely delicious and kind of addicting, but I don’t always have the patience to wait an hour for shortbread dough to chill before slicing and baking (sometimes, you want cookies and you want them now).
