Candy Cane Blossoms

Published December 26, 2012 by thepinkgourmet

These are the most adorable looking cookies.  They taste as good as they look as well. These are a fun cookie to make.  They taste like a sugar cookie with a surprise mint flavor in the middle. The Candy Cane Kisses are delicious on their own, but when you add them to the cookies they are even better.  I will definitely add these to my list of holiday cookies to make each year.


Candy Cane Blossoms


recipe from Hershey’s
1 bag Hershey;s Kisses brand Candy Cane Kisses
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 egg
2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons milk
Red and Green colored sugar
Preheat over to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Remove wrappers from candies (approx. 35)
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.
Shape dough into 1 inch balls.  Roll in red and/or green colored sugar.  Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 8 – 1o 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.  Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.  Cool completely.  Yields approximately 35 cookies.
The first step is to put your butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla into a mixing bowl.
Beat until well blended.
The next thing you need to do is combine your flour, baking soda, and salt.  Also, put your milk into a small prep bowl.

Next get out whatever colored sugar you are going to use to roll these in.
Shape the dough into 1 inch size ball and roll into the colored sugar of your choice.
Put onto a cookie sheet and bake 8-10 minutes or until lightly brown  in a preheated 350 degree oven.
They should look like this when they are done.  Let cool 2-3  minutes on cookie sheet.
After the 2-3 minutes press a Candy Cane Kiss onto the center of each cookie, remove to a wire rack to cool completely.  Then you are ready to enjoy them!
