    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.
