Festive Cookies Fall Flat

candy cane kiss cookiesThese candy cane kiss cookies from To. Die. For. Recipes calls for rolling cookie dough into balls, rolling the cookie balls around in colorful sugar, and pressing a peppermint kiss into each one when they’re perfectly baked.

So far, I love everything about them. Well, except the part where I have to make my own cookie dough. And the part where I have to resist eating all the peppermint kisses by the fistful while I wait for the cookies to bake. Hey, 8-10 minutes is a long time.

Which shows me that CraftFail reader¬†Leanne exercised superhuman levels of willpower as she set out to make these plump, festive treats. And yet, despite the fact that she still had peppermint kisses left in her kitchen when the cookies came out of the oven…

Christmas cookies fell flat…THIS happened. Wait a second, where’s the “sad trombone” key on this keyboard…?

Ah, there is is: **wah wahhhhhhhh**

Well, they might not be much to look at, but I bet they pass the taste test with flying (green and red) colors!

    So, the way to make these successfully is to do exactly as done – except to place the kiss after the cookies have cooled (let them sit for at least an hour – I usually pull them out and then leave for a couple of hours to avoid temptation). If you put a dab of icing underneath the kiss it won’t fall out, either.

    Also, if you use a thumbprint cookie recipe for your dough you can have a pre-made well to put the kiss in :)

    Just a tip to get that perfect plump cookie look – chill your dough. I make a yum and easy cookie with cool whip and the first batch with barely thawed cool whip is always that wonderful round thick cookie shape, with the following batches being flat (and still delish!).
