Blarney Stone-KISSed Cookies

Saturday, March 13, 2010

These St. Patrick's Day treats come from Hershey's Kitchens and are just as delicious as they are pretty. They're sure to please any chocolate lover!

What you'll need:
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup HERSHEY'S Cocoa
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • QUICK COOKIE GLAZE (recipe follows)
  • HERSHEY'S KISSES Brand Milk Chocolates or HERSHEY'S HUGS Brand Candies

1. Beat butter, sugar, egg and vanilla in large bowl until well blended. Stir together flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt; gradually add to butter mixture, beating until well blended. Divide dough in half; place each half on separate sheet of wax paper.

2. Shape each half into log with squared sides, about 7 inches long and 2-1/4 inches wide. Wrap each log in wax paper or plastic wrap. Refrigerate until firm, at least 8 hours.

3. Heat oven to 325°F. Cut logs into 3/8-inch thick slices. Place onto ungreased cookie sheet.

4. Bake 15 minutes or until set. Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. Remove wrappers from chocolate pieces.

5. Prepare QUICK COOKIE GLAZE; drizzle cookies. Immediately place a chocolate piece on each cookie. About 3 dozen cookies.
