Christmas Blossoms Sugar Cookies with Hershey Kiss
Who doesn’t just adore Christmas Cookies? Christmas cookies are one of those things that just make me happy. I don’t know if it is the sprinkles or what…I just cannot resist a good and homemade Christmas cookie!
That is why I absolutely am obsessed with these Christmas Blossoms Sugar Cookies (some will call them Thumb Print Cookies). They are everything Christmas cookie wrapped into one delicious treat.
They have the sugar cookie, the sprinkles and they are topped with a delicious Hershey’s Kiss – what could be better than that – answer: nothing!
These Hershey Kiss Sugar Cookies, which I like to call “happiness in a cookie” will be your new favorite! I also have a great version with peanut butter. Many of the traditional Blossom Cookies are actually made with peanut butter. We wanted to give you this peanut-free cookie option, but if you are a peanut butter fan, check out our Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies too (they can be made Christmas themed or not!

Christmas Sugar Cookie Blossoms

Serves — 18
These Christmas Sugar Cookie Blossoms will rock your world! They have the sugar cookie, the sprinkles and they are topped with a delicious Hershey's Kiss - what more can you ask from a Christmas Cookies and they are perfect for your cookie exchange!
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 8 minutes
Total Time 18 minutes

Ingredients
  

  • 10 tbs butter room temp
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 tsp lemon extract
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 ½ cups flour
  • ¾ tsp baking powder
  • dash of salt
  • 18 Hershey kisses
  • Christmas sprinkles

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350 and line a couple of cookie sheet with a silicon baking mat or parchment paper.
  • In a bowl mix the flour, baking powder and that dash of salt (set aside).
  • In a separate bowl, cream the butter and sugar until soft - (a couple of minutes on medium/high speed should do the trick.)
  • Add in the yolks one at a time, mixing it thoroughly each time.
  • Next, add the lemon extract and zest and mix until combined.
  • Slowly add the flour mixture and mix until well combined. If the dough is a bit sticky to the fingers, chill for 30 minutes to an hour in the refrigerator.
  • Roll the dough into 1/2 inch balls (I used a cookie scooper) and then roll in your favorite sprinkles.
  • Bake for 8 minutes, or until the bottom is very slightly turning golden brown. Keep an eye on the cookies, so don't want to over bake them! They still need to be soft to the touch, when you remove them from the oven.
  • Allow them to cool for a couple of minutes before adding the kisses. Gently press the Hershey Kiss in the center of the cookie and immediately put the pan in the fridge, so the chocolate doesn't melt over the cookies. Keep them in the fridge until the cookies are completely cool.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge.

  1. I’d like to make these for my son’s play date. Could I make the dough the night before so that the kids could do the sprinkles, baking, and kisses part? Do you recommend I make the dough balls and chill those or could I chill a bowl of dough? Thank you!

    1. Yes, you can chill the cookie dough overnight. I would not chill it in the dough balls, just the entire bowl. Make sure to cover it.
