Project 365/322 Yum!

Wednesday I went to the store to pick up milk and I spotted Candy Cane Hersey kisses and instantly thought of the Candy Corn kiss cookie recipe that I wanted to make. These are just yummy and look very festive. I ended up putting too much butter in and had to adjust the recipe to make it work for me. I even had "borrowed" a cup flour from the neighbor!


Here is the recipe for Candy Candy Kiss cookies

Preheat the oven to 375 ° F.

1 cup butter (rm temp)
1 cup Creamy Jiff peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 TBS milk
2 tsp Vanilla extract
3 ½ cup flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt

*¼ cup sugar in a bowl to dip the rolled cookies
1 10 oz bag Hersey kisses

Cream butter and peanut butter together until light and fluffy, add sugars; beat until light and fluffy. Add eggs, milk and vanilla extract; beat well. Gradually add flour, baking soda and salt; stir until well mixed. Rolled into 1" balls and coat with sugar; place balls on an ungreased cookie sheet about 2" apart. Bake 8-10 minutes, as soon as you pull them out of the oven plop an unwrapped Kiss in the center. Let them cool on baking rack or wax paper.

Place cookies in an airtight container after the Kisses harden back up.

This made 57 cookies for me and I had just a few kisses left over from the bag (which my kids gobbled up)
