Chocolate Kiss Cookies
(Printable Recipe Here)
What you need:
1/2 cup butter-flavored shortening
1/2 cup real butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 tsp peppermint extract
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
24 Hershey’s Cookie and Creme Kisses, unwrapped
What to do:
Preheat your oven to 350F.
Cream together softened butter, shortening, brown sugar, and white sugar until everything is light and fluffy. It took me about 2 or 3 minutes to get everything fluffy.
Now mix in the chocolate chips.
If giving this as a gift, divide the dough into 4 sections.
Place each section into a plastic ziplock bags.
Push the dough to the bottom and make a “log” with the dough.
Wrap the bag around the dough to form the “log” of cookie dough.
Roll the “Log” of Cookie Dough in Parchment paper and tie pretty ribbon at each end to secure it.
Now freeze this until ready to gift. (Make sure to give about 14 Hershey Kisses with each Cookie dough log and the remaining directions so that the receiving person can finish up the cookies)
Drop the dough by the spoonful onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
(I used my medium Pampered Chef Scoop and it worked Perfectly!)
Allow to Cool!
When I gave them as gifts I gave a Glass Jar full of baked cookies with ribbon attached and a bow…………….and a log of cookie dough and directions for baking so everyone could make more when they wanted. 🙂
I got the glass jars at Hobby Lobby and used a 40% OFF coupon from the website so each jar was about 2-3 bucks 🙂
