Christmas cookies with a hug!

The Holidays are in full swing and I feel like the only time I really bake is during the holidays or for a birthday! In order to create something delicious you need a few staples in your kitchen! I always lean toward Arm & Hammer baking soda and Gold Medal flour when it comes to baking!


The kids unwrapped all of the Hershey’s kisses!




They rolled the dough into balls.



They dipped the balls in powdered sugar. img_7653

AND the finished product! TASTY!

I decided on making Christmas cookies with the center being a piece of candy!

48 Hershey’s Hugs Kisses

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, softened

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1/4 tsp. baking soda

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Remove wrappers from candies.

Beat butter, granulated sugar, egg and vanilla in large bowl until well blended. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; add alternately with milk to butter mixture, beating until well blended.

Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in red sugar, granulated sugar, powdered sugar or a combination of any of the sugars. Place on a cookie sheet.
