Snickerdoodle Kisses

 

    For Valentine's this year I decided to bake something new, Snikerdoodles with Hershey's Chocolate Kisses. I saw the recipe on Cupcakes & Cashmere, from What's Gaby Cooking? and I thought I would give them a try. I ran out of white sugar half way through the recipe so I used brown sugar instead, and they were still delicious. The chocolate kiss in the centre is a nice touch for Valentine's Day, or just any old day. Give them a try next time you want to bake cookies!

      Directions:

      Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line 2-3 baking sheets with parchment. In a mixer cream together the butter and sugar. Add in the egg and vanilla and mix. Add the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt and mix until combined. Once it is all mixed together set aside. In a bowl mix the sugar and cinnamon for coating. Roll dough into balls and dip into cinnamon sugar mix. Bake for 11-12 minutes. Once the cookies have baked, remove from oven and immediately push a Hershey's Kiss lightly in the centre of the cookie. Let cool and enjoy with a cup of tea!
