I love the Candy Cane Kisses candies.  They look so cute and you can really taste the candy cane flavor.  So this year instead of making cookies with chocolate Kisses I wanted to use the Peppermint Kisses in a cookie.

I kept it very simple and just put them on top of sugar cookies as they came out of the oven. The resulting cookie was delicious and super easy to make. If you aren’t into baking you could use refrigerated dough and end up with a very easy dessert to take for a party or cookie exchange.
