Peppermint Kiss Cookies Recipe


  • 1 17.5 oz. package sugar cookie mix
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 large egg
  • 1-3 Tbsp. flour
  • 1 tsp. peppermint extract
  • 4-5 drops red food coloring
  • 18-20 dark chocolate Hershey kisses

1.Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
2.Dump cookie mix into a large mixing bowl. Add softened butter, egg and one tablespoon of flour.
3.Using an electric mixer or your hands, mix until it forms a soft dough.
4.Divide dough in half. Add peppermint extract to one half. Knead it into the dough until well-incorporated. Add a tablespoon of flour if dough is too sticky.
5.Add red food coloring to the other half. Start with 4 drops of food coloring, and add more until you get a nice, deep pink color. Add a tablespoon or two of additional flour if the dough is too sticky.
6.Pinch off a teaspoon of pink dough and a teaspoon of white dough. Stick together and form a ball.
Important: Don't knead them together, or the dough will all turn pink. You want a nice candy cane stripe.
7.Place balls 1 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10-15 minutes, until cookies are lightly browned on the bottom.
8.Remove from oven and immediately press a Hershey kiss in the middle of each cookie.
