Candy Cane Kisses

Don't you just love holiday cookies?  When else, besides the holidays, do we get to eat tons of cookies and treats with liberty?!

Hershey, throughout the last few years, has come out with a huge variety of Kisses.  One of their newest, which I discovered last winter, is the Candy Cane flavor!  Mmmmm!!

These Candy Cane Kiss cookies are so delightful!

Sugar cookie dough studded  with chunks of chopped up Candy Cane Kisses, rolled in sugar, baked, then topped with a Candy Cane Kiss.  Scrumptious!

Here is the recipe!  Enjoy!

Candy Cane Kisses

48 Candy Cane Kisses, divided
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons milk
Granulated sugar

 Preheat oven to 350°F. Remove wrappers from candies.   Measure out ½ cup of kisses and chop.  Set aside.

 Beat butter, granulated sugar, egg and vanilla in large bowl until well blended. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; add alternately with milk to butter mixture, beating until well blended.

Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in granulated sugar, and place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.

 Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned and cookie is set. Remove from oven; cool 2 to 3 minutes. Press a candy piece into center of each cookie.  If possible, place cookie sheet directly into your fridge to cool cookies quickly.   Cool completely.
