Snickerdoodle Blossoms

This morning while I was eating my cereal and finally getting a chance to get caught up on this weeks posts, I spotted these marvelous cookies over at Keeper Worthy Recipes. I knew I must make these for my Hershey Kiss loving children immediately. While grocery shopping yesterday the end cap with the Kisses seemed to be calling my name. I'm so glad I gave in and bought them and was able to make these cookies ASAP! Denise posted a good one. These cookies are wonderful. I've always been rather partial to snickerdoodles and adding chocolate takes them over the top. It's a winning combination for sure. They're especially good while the Kisses are still melty. I set them on the counter and even an hour later the chocolate was still yummy and oozy. I was hoping to have a few to bring into work with me Monday to share with my fellow janitorial friends, but I made these cookies 2 hours ago and they're already half gone. Sorry Tina!

1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed, brown sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup sugar
1 TBSP cinnamon
48 milk chocolate kisses, unwrapped

Heat oven to 375. Combine 1/2 cup white sugar, brown sugar and butter in large mixing bowl.
Beat at medium speed until creamy. Add egg, vanilla and salt; continue beating until well mixed. Reduce speed to low and add flour and baking soda. Beat until well mixed. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Combine 1/4 cup sugar and 1 tbsp cinnamon in a small bowl. Roll dough balls into cinnamon sugar mixture. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately press 1 chocolate kiss in center of each cookie and sprinkle remaining cinnamon sugar mixture over them while they're still warm.

Totally yummy! I'm catching up today. The zucchini sauce and the apple dumplings (especially the dumplings!) both look wonderful too.
