Viennese Kiss Cookies

These are a shortbread cookie with a candy kiss tucked in the top.

Viennese Kiss Cookies

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

3/4 cup butter, chilled and cut into 1 inch squares

1/4 cup sugar

3 Tbls sour cream

1 tsp vanilla

24 chocolate kisses

Heat oven to 350 F. Grease 24 section (or 2 12 cup)minature muffin tin. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, butter and sugar. Beat*, beginning at slow speed and then gradually increasing to medium speed as flour is combined with butter, until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add sour cream and vanilla. Beat* at low speed until soft dough forms.

Shape dough into 1 inch balls (or use a one inch scoop). Place 1 ball in each prepared muffin cup. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Remove from oven and immediately** press kiss into center of each cookie. Let cool for 1 minute before removing from pans. Cool completely on wire rack before storing.

*I use the paddle attachment for my Kitchen Aid to incorporate the butter and flour, then switch to the dough hook after adding the sour cream and vanilla.

**Be sure to unwrap your candy kisses while the cookies are baking. You won't have time to unwrap each one when the cookies come out of the oven.

I'll bet these taste good! I like that they're a little different than the typical Christmas cookie that has the chocolate kiss pressed into them.
