Butternut Kisses



Butternut Kisses

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup ground walnuts or pecans (or chopped fine, whichever you prefer)
  • Milk chocolate candy kisses

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cream together the butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla.

Add flour, baking soda and salt; mix well.  Shape into 1 inch balls and roll in ground nuts.

Place on ungreased baking sheet and bake for 10 – 11 minutes or until set.  Turn tray after 7 minutes.

Press kiss in center of each cookie.  Cool on wire rack.

Makes about 2 1/2 dozen.

(I made mine bigger than 1 inch so I didn’t get as many cookies.)
