Kiss Cookies

Monday, December 10th, 2012

I found this recipe in a magazine years ago. I think the may have been called Chocolate Bon Bons but I’ve always called them Kiss Cookies because of the Hershey’s Kiss in the middle of them.

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 Cup Crisco
  • 1/2 Cup Sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar (firmly packed)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 Tsp Almond Extract
  • 1 3/4 Cup Flour (plain)
  • 1/2 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Tsp Salt
  • 1/2 Cup finely chopped Pecans
  • 2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 3-4 dozen Hershey’s Kisses

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Using electric mixer, cream Crisco and sugars until fluffy. Add egg, extracts; beat well. Add flour, baking powder, salt and nuts. Mix until blended. Form dough into 1-inch balls. Press each ball around a kiss so the kiss is completely enclosed like a chocolate covered cherry. Bake 10-12 minutes on an ungreased cookie sheet. (Do not overbake). Cool on wire racks. Frost/decorate as desired.

For the decorating, I’ve used tubes of green and red frosting. Then dip the frosted cookie into little bowl with Nonpareils.
