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.
- 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.
