Day 1: Hershey Kiss Christmas Cookies

Welcome to Day 1 of my 12 Days of Christmas 2016.

Over the next 12 Days you can look forward to posts that will include things to make, things to bake and easy ways to decorate.

I’m starting off with these Hershey Kiss Christmas Cookies (that’s my name for them).

I had a good laugh when I read the instructions to remove the wrappers from the candy as the first step in the baking process.  Take it from me buy a big bag….a lot of them ended up in my belly – very, very smart move on the part of the Hershey company…lol

recipe from Hershey’s
1 bag Hershey’s Kisses brand Candy Cane Kisses (I used Hershey’s Hugs)
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 egg
2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons milk
Red and Green colored sugar
Preheat over to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove wrappers from candies (approx. 35)
Beat butter, sugar, vanilla, and egg in large bowl until well blended. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; add alternatively with milk to butter mixture, beating until well blended.
Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Roll in red and/or green colored sugar. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 8 – 1o minutes or until edges are lightly browned and cookies is set. Remove from oven; cool 2 to 3 minutes. Press candy piece into center of each cookie. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. Yields approximately 35 cookies.
