Hugs And Kisses Cookies XOXO
Makes 48 cookies
- 1 tube (16 ounces) refrigerated Pillsbury sugar cookie dough
- 48 Hershey’s Mini Kisses — found with the other baking chips
- 2 tbsp unbleached flour, not sifted
- 1 tbsp powdered sugar, not sifted
- 2 tsp vanilla extract or 1 1/2 tsp almond extract
- 1 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1 – 2 tbsp cinnamon sugar mixture
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees and have 3 cookie sheets ready, lined with parchment paper; set aside.
- In a large mixing bowl, add the whole tube of the cookie dough along with the flour, powdered sugar, cinnamon and the extract.
- Mix well with clean hands or a wooden spoon.
- When all mixed, chill dough in fridge for about 10 minutes.
- Remove from fridge and roll up into 48 little balls of dough; about a teaspoon or so each. Place on cookie sheets.
- Bake about 9-10 minutes on the middle rack. After 5 minutes, turn the pan around for even baking. Remember, we always bake one cookie sheet at a time.
- Cookies will be done when they are puffed up, set in the center, and the bottom is light brown. Transfer cookie sheet to cooling rack and gently press a mini kiss in the center of each cookie.
- Cool for about 3-5 minutes. After that, you can slide the parchment paper off the cookie sheet onto the cooling rack and let the cookies firm and set.
- Repeat steps 5 through 7 until all of the cookies are done.
- Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar lightly over each cookie.
