TRIED ‘N’ TRUE: Looking for a surprise? Look inside these cookies

At Christmastime we are always looking for surprises. This cookie recipe has a surprise in it. I don’t remember where I got this recipe. I enjoy making these all through the year.

My granddaughters make them now. I have fun changing what I put inside. At Christmas, I use red and green cherries. You can also use candy. There just has to be a surprise inside.

Cookie Kiss Surprise

1 - 9 oz. bag of kisses or kisses with almonds

2 sticks butter, softened

1⁄3 cup sugar

1⁄3 cup light brown sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 cups flour

1 cup chocolate chips

• In a large bowl beat butter, sugar and vanilla. Add flour and blend until smooth. Mold scant tablespoon full of dough around each kiss. Cover completely.

• Bake on ungreased cookie sheet for 10-20 minutes at 350 degrees. Cool slightly, remove, melt chocolate chips and drizzle over cookies. About four dozen.
