Christmas Kiss Cookies

When I was packing my stuff for India trip, I packed a lot of sweaters and jackets. December in Delhi is cold, like not as cold as in US but cold enough. And I have lived in Delhi all my life so I know how the weather is there during this time of the year however as soon as I landed here I realized that I packed all the wrong clothes! Maybe it’s the environmental change or global warming but it wasn’t cold AT ALL! Like I was going shopping with mom in my t-shirt and trust me I am one of those who wrap themselves in jackets and scarfs as soon as it starts getting cold so you can imagine it must not have been cold at all if I am saying so.

I was really kicking myself for bringing all the wrong clothes and then things suddenly changed overnight. In 1 day, the temperature dropped considerably and now we have minimum temperatures in 40s here. I don’t know whether I should be happy about it – because now I can wear all my sweaters and jackets or be sad about the whole thing because I was actually enjoying the pleasant weather! 😐 Oh well, I think I am happy that this cold is still so bearable, I am dreading what it will be like when I return to US in 2 weeks.

Anyway other than the weather, it’s been raining cookies on Cook With Manali lately. The cookie that I sharing with you today happens to be one of my favorites! I made lots of cookies for the Holidays this year before my vacation. I have to say that the last 2 weeks before leaving for my vacation were really crazy. I think I was in the kitchen 24×7, I really didn’t have a choice. I wanted to make a lot of things to share with you guys while I am away. And in among st all the madness, there were lot of recipe fails [ 🙁 ] and also recipes which turned out awesome and made me happy. These Christmas Kiss Cookies fall in the latter category.

Look at them, so festive!

Holidays Kiss Cookies

There are so many cookies recipe and it really feels hard to pick a favorite but these Christmas Kiss Cookies are right up there. What I love about them the most is that they are so easy to make. You need few ingredients for these – flour, butter, sugar, milk, vanilla extract, egg yolk and little salt. I am sure you must already have all these ingredients in your pantry and refrigerator. Other than these you obviously need Hershey’s kisses and Christmas Sprinkles. I used mini Hersheys kisses for these but you can use the regular ones too.

Meanwhile preheat oven to 350 F degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside. Once the dough has chilled take it out and roll the dough into 1 inch balls, you will get around 25-30 balls from this dough. Roll each ball into the sprinkles till it’s well covered with sprinkles from all sides.

Form a indentation in the center of each cookie with your thumb.

Place the cookies 2 inch apart on the prepared baking tray. Bake the cookies at 350 F degrees for 8-10 minutes, I baked for 10 minutes. Remove from over and with your thumb make an indentation again in the center. Place hershey’s kisses in the center immediately.
