Hershey Kiss Gingerbread Cookies

Wow, wow, wow - these were one of my favorite new cookie recipes that I made for Christmas this year - BY FAR!! I will definitely be making these every year. They were so soft and delicious and I loved the combination of gingerbread and chocolate. There are certain cookies that I make every year at Christmas time and these are definitely going on that list!!

Hershey Kiss Gingerbread Cookies
(recipe found on pinterest via

3 cups flour
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup molasses
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup sugar
48 Hershey kisses, unwrapped

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, ginger, cinnamon, baking soda, nutmeg and salt. Set aside. In a separate mixing bowl, beat butter and brown sugar together on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add egg, molasses and vanilla; mix well. On low speed gradually add flour mixture and beat until well mixed. Press dough into a flat disk, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for four hours or overnight. Preheat oven to 350 and roll dough into 1" balls, roll in sugar and place on baking sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes or until edges are beginning to brown. Remove from oven and immediately press a kiss into the center. Remove to wire rack and allow to cool completely.
