Holiday cookie platters are favored all around the world. The types of cookies we make might be different from region to region, from country to country, but the basic idea of this delicious season’s greeting is the same no matter where you are.
That being said, this is a treat that you must you have down to a science. More than likely, you have been making the same type of holiday cookies for years now, and there is nothing wrong with that!
But we’re about to challenge you to do something a little different this time. This holiday season, its time to add something new to the mix. This will be a shocker to your friends and family to see this new addition to the cookie platter…in more than one way.
Now, we are certainly not suggesting you forgo your famous thumbprint raspberry jam cookies. We would never suggest such a thing. However, it wouldn’t hurt to swap out one of your old classics for something a little different, right? Variety is, after all, the spice of life.
If you’ve been searching for a delicious new recipe to add to your holiday platter, we have just the thing for you! These secret kiss cookies.
This recipe takes a traditional Russian tea cookie and gives it an extra-special surprise inside: a gooey Hershey kiss. The outside is the same buttery, crumbly, powdered sugar-covered cookie you’ve come to expect, but when you bite in you get an extra burst of indulgent flavor.
Delicious AND a surprise to the senses? Yes, please.
Not only are these fun cookies yummy to eat, but they’re cool to look at, too. Cutting one in half leaves you with the classic chocolate silhouette we all know and love, and with it being surrounded by dough and gorgeous powdered sugar, nothing is more worthy of a quick pic for Instagram.
Trust us, your guests might be sad for a moment when they see your holiday fudge has taken a vacation, but they will fall for these surprise cookies the moment they sink their teeth into them! The only downside? You’re going to get a LOT of phone calls asking for your secret recipe.
