I made these cookies for my sister in law’s wedding and I made extra for my family to try. And they loved them! My Aunt Lois has been trying to get me to make some more for her. She even after to buy all the ingredients if I would make them for her. I think this is what I am going to bake her for Christmas.
36 Hershey’s Kisses
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, softened
1 cup sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup Cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup milk
1 can (16 oz.) vanilla frosting (I use cream cheese frosting)
1. Heat oven to 375°F. Remove wrappers from chocolate pieces.
2. Beat butter, sugar, egg and vanilla in large bowl until well blended. Add flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt alternately with milk, beating until well blended. Cover; refrigerate dough about 1 hour or until firm enough to handle. Shape dough into 1-inch balls; place on ungreased cookie sheet.
3. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until set. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. Spread frosting onto cookies, leaving about 1/2-inch around outer edge unfrosted; place chocolate piece in center of each cookie. About 3 dozen cookies.
