Peppermint Kiss Cookies


During Halloween I made Candy Corn Kiss Cookies so I decided to do peppermint kiss cookies this time with chocolate cookies. I was asked to make the dessert for a work Christmas party and then again for someone dinner party tonight. I stayed up until 4 am Friday morning baking for the work Christmas party. It was for about 90 people. I made a few platters of bite size treats and will post the recipes in the coming weeks.
Beat 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar and 1 stick butter until fluffy, then beat in 1 egg and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Whisk 1 1/2 cups flour, 1/2 cup Dutch-process cocoa powder, 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon baking powder; stir into the butter mixture. Chill 30 minutes, then roll into balls and bake 12 to 15 minutes at 350 degrees. Then place a kiss in the center of each cookie.

I also made:
Brownies(with Christmas m&m's scattered on top.
Bite Size Red Velvet Cupcakes
