Candy Corn Kiss Cookies

I knew as soon as I saw these cookies on
The Idea Door,
that I had to make them!
If you have never been over to her blog you have to check it out.
She has some of the best IDEAS.
Our family loves the regular Kiss cookies made this same way but with a chocolate kiss.
The candy corn kiss just looks so fun.
I found the candy corn kisses at Target in the seasonal area.
My kids love to help me unwrap the kisses, and put them in the cookie, then of course eat them!

Candy Corn Kiss Cookies
adapted from the Idea Door

What you need:
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter, room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup firmly-packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup granulated sugar (for rolling cookie dough in)
48 Hershey® Kisses® chocolate candies, unwrapped

How to Make:

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

2. In a large bowl, cream butter and peanut butter until light and fluffy. Gradually add 1/2 cup granulated sugar and brown sugar; beating until light and fluffy. Add egg, milk, and vanilla extract; beat well. Add flour, baking soda, and salt; stir into creamed mixture until well mixed.

3. Roll cookie dough into 1-inch balls. Optional - you can lightly roll cookie dough balls in the 1/4 of sugar before you bake.

4. Place balls, 2 inches apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets.

5. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven and immediately press a chocolate kiss or candy corn kiss into the center of each cookie (cookie will crack around edges). Remove from cookie sheet and let cookies cool on wire racks or tin foil.

Yields 4 dozen cookies.
