Chocolate Chip Kisses (Hilda Hallock)

The unusual thing about these cookies is that they “cook” in a preheated oven which is turned off as soon as the baking sheet goes into the oven. Cookies then remain in oven 8 hours or overnight. Resist temptation to open that oven door during this process! A favorite with the chocoholics among Gram’s grandkids.
