Use your cookie press to form a green, mint-flavored cookie and pop a Hershey’s Kiss in the middle.

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar

  • 1 cup butter, softened

  • 1 large egg

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla

  • 1/4 teaspoon mint extract

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

  • green food coloring

  • 60 Hershey’s Kisses

Directions

  • Heat oven to 400F. In large mixer bowl combine sugar, butter, egg, salt, vanilla, and mint extract. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until mixture is light and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Add flour. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed, 2 to 3 minutes. Mix in green food coloring, adding just enough to acheive the desired color. If dough is too soft, cover and refrigerate until firm enough to form cookies, 30 to 45 minutes. Place dough in cookie press. Form desired shapes 1 inch apart on cookie sheets. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Immediately after removing cookies from oven place one Hershey’s kiss on each cookie.

These are the BEST cookies! We do not have a cookie press so we used our standard cookie scoop. We also used the mint kisses as another person who reviewed suggested. These will be on our Christmas cookie list from here on forward.

This was my first time using the cookie press and I thought this recipe would be great. The cookies were bland and not at all what I expected. I hope to find a better recipe!

★★☆☆☆
I think you should have 1/2 tsp. of the mint extract rather than just a 1/4 tsp. Mine didn't taste very minty, more buttery. Also, a lot of them fell apart. I only got two dozen good cookies. Will try recipe again, but a friend suggested I add cream cheese to the recipe. She said it makes the texture easier to use with the cookie press.

These tasted really yummy. The mint is a nice departure. The only problem I had was that some cookies cracked a little as I added the chocolate. I added it immediately after they came out, too. I had to use chocolate chips (I forgot the kisses as the store), but I don't think that would cause breakage issues.

Tastes like a dinner mint and dessert all in one!Easy to make; a perfect holiday treat.I used the mint kisses and it added an extra minty kick. Would definitely make again!

Wonderful cookies! I will definitely make them again. I placed Andes chocolate mint pieces on the cookies before baking them and found that the cookie didn't break apart (as they did when I put them on as soon as the cookies were out of the oven). The chocolate pieces held together- they didn't melt into a puddle. I baked them at 350 degrees F instead of 400 degrees F, so I don't know if 400 degrees would affect the chocolate differently. Great recipe! They melt in your mouth!

I thought this would be delicious, but the baked cookies were extremely dry, and not as flavorful as I'd hoped for. The dough was a little sticky (had to repress almost half the batch), but after putting the baking sheets in the freezer for a few minutes, it worked a little better. Still, anything with Hershey Kisses is ok with me! I will try this one again, just to see if the second time around works better.

I am so glad I came across this recipe! The dough was perfect for my cookie press (this is the first recipe I've used where the dough actually formed the correct design with my press/disks and actually stayed on the cookie sheet when "pressed"). The mint flavor is perfect for the holiday season. Instead of the chocolate kisses, I just melted the chocolate and spread it between two cookies, but otherwise I kept the recipe exactly the same! I will surely make this again, possibly substituting different flavors (almond, maple) for the mint. Thanks!
