  • Cream the butter and sugar together until fluffy; mix in the egg and vanilla.
  • In a separate bowl, lightly whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt together. Gradually beat these dry ingredients into the creamed mixture.
  • Place the candy canes in a small bag and pound until finely crushed. Pour into a small bowl.
  • Take a piece of cooking dough and roll into a ball about 1 inch in diameter. Roll the ball in the crushed candy canes until coated; place on an ungreased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.
  • Bake in an oven preheated to 350 degrees F. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until cookies are just starting to brown around the bottom edges.
  • Press a candy cane kiss into the center of each cookie. Remove immediately to a cooling rack.
    Note: If the candy kiss melts too much, try removing the cookies from the hot cookie sheet and placing them on a cool cookie sheet before adding the candy kiss. Then transfer to a cooling rack immediately.
  • Allow candy cane kisses to harden completely before storing.

"I started doing some of my Christmas baking and thought these looked fun so I tried them. They were easy to make but I had trouble with the candy kiss melting too much. I finally tried the suggestion in the recipe and that helped. I also found it helped if I didn't press them into the cookie as much as I was to start with. They are still pretty cute and yummy."
