Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter softened (1 stick)
  • 4 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp almond extract
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar for rolling
  • 42 milk chocolate kiss candies unwrapped

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line three baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside. Using a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or a large mixing bowl with a hand mixer), combine the butter, cream cheese, sugar, egg and almond extract and beat on medium speed until creamy and free of lumps.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Mix well. Gradually add to the butter mixture and beat on medium speed until just combined.
  • Add the confectioner’s sugar to a small bowl. Scoop out tablespoon-size chunks of batter and form balls using your hands. Roll balls in powdered sugar to coat completely. Place onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes, or until lightly golden around edges. Immediately press a kiss into the center of each cookie.

Notes

  • Use peppermint kisses or a different variety to change up the flavor a bit!
  • For an extra sugary cookie, double roll the balls of dough in powdered sugar before baking.
