Candy Cane Blossom Cookies Recipe

Candy Cane Blossom Cookies Recipe

During the weeks before Christmas, I love spending hours in my kitchen baking cookies. A few years ago I stumbled across a beautiful recipe for candy cane blossoms from Baked Perfection. I wanted to make the gorgeous red and green cookies but had had trouble finding the Hershey’s Candy Cane Kisses. This year while shopping for Thanksgiving ingredients, I found some at Walmart and was finally able to make the festive cookies!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup of softened butter
  • 1 cup of white sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons of milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups of whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
  • red and green colored sugar
  • Hershey’s Candy Cane Kisses

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
  2. Unwrap the Hershey’s Candy Cane Kisses.
  3. Beat together the butter, sugar, vanilla, egg, and milk in a large bowl.
  4. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl.
  5. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients until well blended.
  6. Roll the cookie dough into 1-inch balls.
  7. Roll the dough balls in the red or green colored sugar.
  8. Place the sugared dough balls on an ungreased or parchment-lined baking sheet.
  9. Bake the cookies for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
  10. Press a Hershey’s Candy Cane Kiss into the center of each baked cookie.
  11. Allow the cookies to cool completely.
  12. Store the candy cane blossom cookies in an airtight container.
