Description

Cherry thumbprint cookies with vanilla filling and Hershey’s Kisses!

Ingredients

  • FOR THE COOKIES:
  • ½ cups Butter, Softened
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 1-½ teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 2 cups Flour
  • ¼ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt
  • 2 Tablespoons Milk
  • ⅓ cups Maraschino Cherries, Chopped
  • 36  Hershey’s Kiss Hugs, Unwrapped
  • FOR THE FILLING:
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter, Softened
  • ¾ cups Powdered Sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons Milk
  • ½ teaspoons Vanilla

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350 F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or lightly grease. Set aside.

Beat together butter, sugar, egg and vanilla in a large bowl. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. Add dry ingredients into the butter mixture alternately with milk. Stir in chopped cherries.

Shape dough into one-inch balls and place them on the prepared sheets, spacing them about 2 inches apart. Gently press your thumb into the center of each cookie.

Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until edges have set. Remove from oven and let cookies rest on baking sheets for about 3 minutes (use your thumb and press the center of the of cookies again if necessary). Remove from cookie sheets and let them cool on a baking rack.

To prepare filling, combine butter, sugar, milk and extract in a bowl. Beat until creamy. Using a teaspoon, fill the dent in the top of each cookie with filling. Place a Kiss in the center and let filling set completely before storing.
