Secret Kiss Cookies
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 15 min./batch
A minor modification/shortcut to shaping. Use a 1 tablespoon cookie scoop, don't over chill the dough. This works with cool softish not cold hard dough. Press a kiss, pointy side down into the filled scoop, until the bottom of the kiss is even with the top edge of the scoop. Smooth the dough that wells up around the edges back over the bottom of the kiss. Then simply release the cookie on the baking sheet. Dusted with powdered sugar they looked like little snowballs and the grandkids greatly enjoyed them.
I make these at Christmas with a candied cherry inside (Sugarplum Surprises) & make them round. For Valentine's Day I shape them like a "kiss' & cover them w/foil along with "the tag" saying Happy Valentines Day or THINK SPRING!!! (If you can't tolerate nuts use oatmeal) Very easy to make & fun too!!
I am glad I tried this recipe. My grandchildren loved the chocolate kisses inside. Because of the children, I didn't add the walnuts, but I am sure that would have added a lot. Nice change from peanut butter blossoms with Hershey Kisses on top.
Made these for a cookie swap contest, and they won! Very good! I would definitely make them again.

These cookies are my Son's favorite!! I make them every Christmas!! Yummo!!
Easy and yummy. My kids loved helping make these - I rolled out the balls and flattened them, and the kids put the kisses in the middle and sealed them up. A fun cookie to make together.
Delicious! One of the best cookies I've had! Yes they can be a bit tedious to make, but it's worth it. I used candy cane kisses in half and hugs in the rest.
I've been making these for years (with a couple slight variations) and they're always a hit. I add 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips to the cookie dough and I use the kisses with an almond in the center. I've never rolled them in sugar after baking, but that sounds good. A real Christmas classic.
