Hidden Kiss Cookies

December 7, 2014

Hi friends!

Last night, I had a College of Liberal Arts party to go to, so yesterday afternoon, Lila and I put on our holiday baking hats.

We don’t really have baking hats.  Though I wish we did.

I browsed a lot of different cookie recipes before settling on this one, from the current issue of Southern Living:  Hidden Kiss Snow-mound cookies.  I liked the name.  Plus, the dough doesn’t have any eggs in it (it’s basically an almond shortbread), which meant that we could eat as much of it as we wanted.  #winning

Lila was, as always, a great helper:

She helped to unwrap all of the kisses, and didn’t even try to sneak *too* many into her mouth.

I made the dough while she unwrapped the chocolate, and then we placed a kiss in each dough mound:

The mounds were then topped off with MORE dough, thus creating the complete snowmound.

How many times can I say “mound” in this post?  Clearly we’re going to find out.

…and topped with “snow”:

These were delicious! Put them on your holiday “to-bake” list!

    Love these! We already did our holiday baking, but I saw these also and wanted to make them. Perhaps I will sneak these in this weekend 🙂
