Oh man, Secret Kiss Cookies are the best and so simple to make! Nothing better than a tall glass of ice cold milk and biting into a still warm from the oven shortbread cookie and finding a secret milk chocolate Hershey’s Kiss inside. Yum!
This recipe originally came from Sissy’s godmother. She brought them to a party at our house and I just had to have the recipe. Now, it’s one of my go to recipes for J-Man. Because it’s egg-free they are a perfect as a special treat.
Secret Kiss Cookies
1 cup butter – softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp Vanilla extract
1 & 3/4 cups Flour
Approx 36 Hershey’s Kisses – unwrapped
Cream butter, sugar, and vanilla in a large bowl. Gradually add the flour. Blend and chill the dough for one hour. Take the chilled dough and mold approximately 1 TB of the dough around each Hershey’s Kiss. Roll into a ball, making sure the Hershey’s Kiss is completely covered. Bake at 375 degrees for 12 minutes. Roll in powdered sugar while still warm.
Tip: It’s easier to put some powdered sugar into a Ziploc bag and gently shake the bag, covering the cookies. Then I use a spoon or a fork to carefully lift them out. Once they are coated and cooled, store the Secret Kiss Cookies in an airtight container and watch how fast they disappear.
If you make them, I’d love to hear how you liked them!
