Chocolate Caramel Sugar Cookies

/

There is about 2 foot of snow on the ground. Since I'm a great procrastinator and I don't feel like shoveling out my car or cleaning the bathroom, I decided to bake cookies.

When I was at the grocery store last week I saw Hershey's Kisses with caramel in the middle. I bought them and wondered if I could turn them into a cookie. I used a basic sugar cookie dough.

Ingredients:
    • 1/2 cup butter
    • 1/2 scant cup shortening
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 1 egg
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract
    • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 tsp baking powder
    • 1/2 tsp baking soda
    • 1 bag Hershey's Kisses with Caramel
Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Grease baking sheets.
3. In a mixing bowl cream butter, sugar and shortening.
4. Add egg and vanilla. Mix well.
5. Combine flour, baking soda and baking powder into a separate bowl and stir to combine.
6. Gradually mix the flour mixture into the creamed mixture; about 3/4 of a cup at a time.
7. Roll dough into a ball and place it on parchment or wax paper. Refrigerate for 20 minutes.
8. Unwrap 48 of the kisses.
9. Roll dough into teaspoon sized balls and place on cookie sheet. Press down to flatten.
10. Bake cookies for 8-10 minutes or until edges are slightly browned.
11. Take cookie sheets out of the oven, place kisses in the center of each cookie. Don't press down too hard or the kiss will go through the cookie. Work quickly!
12. Put cookies back in the oven for 1-2 minutes.
13. Let cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before cooling on wire racks.

I ended up with 46 cookies. A few were a little on the larger side so I probably could have gotten 50 some cookies from this recipe. I tried adding the kiss half way into baking but it melted through the cookie and left a mess on the cookie pan, so you're definitely better off  adding them at the end. You could also stick them in as soon as the cookies come out of the oven but I'm too impatient for that.
