Thumbprint Kiss Cookies

This is a recipe from the early years of the Cookie Swap. The baker was really creative with the frosting, decorating half of each cookie red, and the other half green, with the Hershey’s Kiss in the Center.

1 c. (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 1/3 c. sugar
2 egg yolks
1/4 c. milk
2 t vanilla extract
2 c. flour
2/3 c. Hershey’s Cocoa
1/2 t salt
1 can (16 oz.) frosting
Red and Green food coloring
Hershey’s Kisses

Beat butter, sugar, egg yolks, milk, and vanilla until fluffy. Combine flour, cocoa, and salt; gradually add to butter mixture, beating until well blended. Refrigerate dough for about 2 hours. Heat oven to 350F. Lightly grease cookie sheet. Shape dough into 1″ balls. Roll in granulated sugar and place on cookie sheet. Press thumb in center of each cookie. Bake 10-12 minutes. Color frosting and drop onto each cookie. Press a kiss on each.
