  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups butter, at room temperature
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 bags of Unwrapped Candy Cane Kisses
  • 2 Ungreased cookie sheets
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract, optional
  • 1/3 cup of granulated sugar, optional

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Remove wrappers from Hershey’s Candy Cane Kisses.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the butter, powdered sugar, extracts and egg and beat well until creamy (2-3 minutes).
  3. In a separate bowl, combine baking powder, flour, and salt and whisk together.
  4. Add dry ingredients to the wet mixture and beat until well blended (1-2 minutes). At this point, the mixture should be a bit crumbly.
  5. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in granulated sugar, if desired; place on ungreased cookie sheet.
  6. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until set. Remove from oven and cool for 2 minutes. Press a candy cane kiss into center of each cookie; cookie will crack around edges.
  7. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. Store in a sealed container.
