So much for being a better blogger in 2010. We are 24 days into the year and this is my first post. 2010 is sure to be a big year for me. I am getting married in May, turning 31 in June and hopefully FI and I will move to a bigger house, with a bigger kitchen and LOTS more property so I can cook more, bake more and plant a bigger garden.
Here is a great recipe I found by accident.
Hershey Secret Kisses Cookies

Secret Almond KISS Cookies
36 Hershey's Kisses with Almonds chocolate candies
1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened 1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 cups finely chopped silvered almonds
1/2 tsp. almond extract (optional)
powdered sugar
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Remove wrappers from Hershey's Kiss candy.
Beat butter, granulated sugar and vanilla in a large bowl until fluffy.
Add flour and almonds; beat on low speed of mixer until well blended.
Using about 1 tablespoon dough for each cookie, shape dough around each candy; roll in hand to make ball. (Be sure to cover each candy
completely.) Place on ungreased cookie sheet. (It may be easier to push down on the cookie a little bit, otherwise the balls roll on the cookie
sheet.) Bake 10 to 12 mins or until cookies are set but not browned.
Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. While still slightly warm, roll in powdered sugar. Cool completely. Store in tightly covered container. Roll again in powdered sugar just before serving.
Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
