Holiday Sweets: Sugar Cookies with Peppermint Kisses

19 Dec

These are quick and easy to make!  Just make your favorite sugar cookies and, when they’re fresh from the oven, press a peppermint Hershey’s Kiss into the center of each one. Ta-da! Simple.

For an extra flourish, though, you can add swirls and stripes to your cookies with decorating gel–

Decorate the raw cookies before they go into the oven–the gel will sink in as the cookies bakes (Caution: if you decorate with gel DO NOT top your sugar cookies with a sprinkling of sugar! It will make your cookies look like a crime scene. Trust me. If you’re not using decorating gel then feel free to roll those suckers in as much extra sugar as you like).  The design will be distorted as the cookie expands, so simple is best–my prettiest cookies were basic swirls and stripes.

These cookies are Angela Approved!
