Taste Of Home set out on a mission to discover each state's favorite holiday dessert and here in Big Sky County, apparently, we're fans of a certain type of cookie. According to the website, when it comes to the holidays in Montana, the best of the best is...

The No-Bake Cookie Butter Blossom.

For those of you who might be scratching your heads wondering "What the heck is that?"  It's a simple recipe with just a few ingredients.  Rice cereal mixed with a cookie spread and then topped with a Hersey Kiss. Of course with the simplicity of the ingredients and no baking involved, it would be a wonderful recipe to make with the little ones this holiday season.

Growing up my Mom made a version of these, however, they were peanut butter cookies that had a Hershey Kiss placed firmly in the middle and they are still one of my favorites to this day.
