Recipe: Hershey's Kiss Holiday Sugar Cookies

Looking for a sweet treat perfect for the holiday season? Well here it is. The Hershey's Kiss Cookies! To better assist, I broke the recipe down into the wet ingredients and the dry ingredients.

What you will need:

  • Cookie baking sheet
  • Hand mixer
  • Large spoon
  • 2 large mixing bowls
  • Measuring cups & spoons
  • Hershey's Kiss Chocolates
  • Food coloring (optional)
Dry Ingredients:
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon  baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

Wet Ingredients:
1 cup (2 sticks) softened butter
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons hot water
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 eggs

Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees. Begin by taking 1 large bowl and placing in all of your dry ingredients. Once all 3 are in, stir the mixture to assure that everything is evenly distributed. Set the dry ingredients bowl aside. Now combine all of your wet ingredients. Be sure to eliminate any lumps that may have formed from the brown sugar. Once everything is added, again stir the mixture to assure that everything is evenly distributed. You should have a rich amber colored mixture. Now take your dry mixture again, and create a well in the center of the mixture. Gently pour your wet mixture into your dry mixture. Taking your mixer, combine all ingredients to form a dough. Be sure to take a spoon and scrape down your sides while mixing. Now, if you wish to use food coloring in your cookies, do so now. If you want multiple colors, simply separate the dough into separate bowls, and add your food coloring in. Next, put your dough in the freezer for 10 minutes. While your dough is in the freezer, you can begin spraying your baking sheets with a light coating of cooking spray. After 10 minutes, remove the dough from the freezer. Begin forming balls out of the dough. Approx. 1.5" balls are good. Place them on your cookie sheet, and give them plenty of room as they do spread out quite a bit. Finally take a unwrapped Hershey's Kiss chocolate, and place it in the middle of your cookie dough ball, and gently press down. Bake for 10 minutes.

I hope you enjoy this tasty recipe!
