A Christmas kiss in the form of a cookie, what could be sweeter? Treat your sweetheart with these white chocolate peppermint kisses. Package them up and present them as a token of your affection or just serve them for dessert. Either way, you might end up with a secret kiss. 💋
½ cup butter
1 8 oz. package cream cheese
1 cup sugar (3/4 cups for dough ¼ cup for sprinkling on cookies)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp peppermint extract
1 ¾ cup flour
Preheat oven to 350° F. Combine butter, cream cheese, and ¾ cup of sugar in mixer and cream together. Add egg, salt, and peppermint extract. Slowly incorporate the flour. Form dough into 2 inch balls and place on a parchment-lined baking tray. Sprinkle with remaining sugar. Use a glass to flatten cookies. Bake at 350° F for 10-12 minutes. Unwrap peppermint kisses and press one into the center of each cookie. Chill cookies in the fridge for 30 minutes to prevent peppermint kisses from fully melting.
