Signature Treat

I pulled this post off my family blog from back in 2008 – before I had my craft blog…..

Mmmm – holiday baking. For the third year running, instead of making tons of various cookies, I’ve just made these “Loretta Lynns”, so I’m declaring them my Signature Holiday Treat. They are a Hershey’s Kiss wrapped in cookie and dipped in icing – yum. After typing this post out, I’ll be eating yet another one. (Note the fancy focusing effect I got with my camera – I’m learning!)

The reason I went to the effort of digging this off my family blog….
YES – that’s the type of cookie on the back of the Hershey’s Kisses bag – and it’s MY holiday cookie!  Now the world can share in my love.  The recipes are a little different — 
Hershey’s Recipe:
1 C butter, softened
1/2 C Sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 3/4 C flour
1 C nuts 
36 Kisses
powdered sugar
Loretta Lynn Cookies (the recipe I use):
3/4 C Crisco
1/2 C Sugar
1/4 C packed brown sugar
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp almond
1 3/4 C flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 C pecans
1 package kisses
and I dip mine in icing instead of coating it in powdered sugar
1/2 stick butter
spoonful shortening
1 tsp almond
2 tbsp milk
1/2 bag pwder sugar
–adjust as needed for desired consistency
Mmmm- now I want to make some…
And speaking of recipes on packages, my friend Aimee said the one on the back of the Candy Cane Kisses is unbelievably delicious….
