I missed a day yesterday, but that just means
we will extent the 12 Days of Christmas Cookies another day.
Today, I am making Candy Cane Blossoms.
These are a twist on one of my favorite cookies: Peanut Butter Blossoms.
If you need a recipe for the originals,
With this recipe, I removed the peanut butter
(sad, I know - but it doesn't mix well with peppermint)
and made them look a little more festive.
You'll love the way these cookies look and taste on your Christmas table!
Candy Cane Blossoms
1 bag Hershey's Kisses - Candy Cane Kisses
1/2 C Butter, softened
1 C Granulated Sugar
1 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
2 C Flour
1/4 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Baking Soda
2 Tbsp Milk
1. Preheat over to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove wrappers from candies (approx. 35)
2. Beat butter, sugar, vanilla, and egg in large bowl until well blended. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; add alternatively with milk to butter mixture, beating until well blended.
3. Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Roll in red and/or green colored sugar. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
4. Bake 8 - 10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned and cookies is set. Remove from oven; cool 2 to 3 minutes. Press candy piece into center of each cookie (if you don't want the kiss to melt, I would wait until the cookies are almost completely cooled). Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. Enjoy!
Yields approximately 35 cookies.
