25 Days of Christmas Cookies: Candy Cane Blossoms

Day 9’s recipe comes from the back of a Hershey Kiss bag; the candy cane kisses to be more specific. It is no secret that Peanut Butter Blossoms are my favorite cookies, so I thought I had to try these candy cane ones.  They are essentially a puffy sugar cookie with a peppermint hershey kiss in the center.  Of all the recipes thus far, this one is the quickest!
