Hershey Kiss Powder Puffs

Thursday, January 15, 2015

Another rainy day today...fortunately, my hubby was home today to make the gloomy day much brighter.  We scoped out the ads in the Sunday paper, then Henley made confetti out of them, we went out to lunch, and then I made cookies...finally!

At the beginning of December, I received a bag of Hershey's Kisses via Influenster and was asked to share a favorite recipe using Hershey's Kisses.




Well, my go-to peanut butter blossom is a little too generic, so I browsed Pinterest for a new and easy recipe to try.  I came upon these Chocolate Kiss Powder Puff Cookies from Averie Cooks and instantly wanted to give them a shot.

These cookies are so easy to make.  I threw them together in about ten minutes and had them for a yummy snack within thirty.  There is no measuring, mixing, or tons of cleanup involved...perfect for me (or anyone short on time, for that matter).  Here is how to make them:



Hershey Kiss Powder Puff Cookies
(Adapted from Averie Cooks)

Ingredients:
  • Package of ready-made pie crust (I used Pillsbury Pie Crusts)
  • Hershey's Kisses (28, unwrapped)
  • Powdered Sugar

Directions:
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.  Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray (I prefer Pam's Baking cooking spray).
  2. Roll out your pie crusts on a cutting board.  Slice each pie crust into 16 pieces (4 rows x 4 rows).  The four corners will be smaller than the rest of the squares, so combine two corners together.  Each pie crust will yield 14 cookies/squares. 
  3. Place a Hershey Kiss in the middle of each square.  Fold the pie crust up around the Kiss, roll    into a ball, and smooth out the creases. 
  4. Put the cookies on a cookie sheet and bake 14-16 minutes.  Mine were done in 15 minutes.
  5. Let the cookies cool about ten minutes, then roll in powdered sugar and enjoy!


These cookies are so yummy, and I have to admit, I think its pretty fun cutting them in half and seeing the Hershey Kiss' shape! I only used one of the pie crusts included in the package today, so the next rainy day (or in-need-of-dessert emergency) I can pop more these in the oven!
