Sugar cookies with vanilla frosting are my absolute favorite type of cookies. While making my annual batch of sugar cookies for Christmas last month, I wanted to do something a bit different. As I looked around my kitchen, I spotted my candy dish full of Hershey’s Kisses. Why not add a chocolate surprise?! 

I am going to be honest with you, I don’t make sugar cookies from scratch. I have always loved Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix. The end result is a delicious, soft sugar cookie! Paired with their Rich & Creamy Vanilla Frosting…yum! There is nothing wrong with getting some help from Betty Crocker especially when you are not an accomplished baker, like myself.

2.) Once you have a soft dough, scoop out 1 tbsp of dough and flatten it on your cookie sheet until it forms a circle.

3.) Remove the foil from a Hershey’s Kiss and place the Kiss directly in the center of your flattened dough. Bring the dough together around the Hershey’s Kiss and pinch the dough together around the top of it. The Hershey’s Kiss should be completely wrapped in the dough. 

4.) Repeat steps 2 and 3 until your cookie sheet is full. Place dough balls 2 inches apart on your cookie sheet.

Tips For Making The Perfect Sugar Cookie

Here are a few tips that you may find helpful!

-Be sure to use softened butter when preparing your dough. If you don’t have time to wait for it to soften, throw your stick of butter in the microwave for 10 seconds.

-I like my sugar cookies soft so I keep an eye on them while they are in the oven. Take them out as soon as you start noticing slightly golden brown edges. Otherwise, they may end up too chewy and burnt on the bottom.

-Let the cookies cool for at least 20 minutes before you attempt to remove them from your cookie sheet with a spatula. If they are not completely cool, they may fall apart while you are trying to remove them.
