Minty Kiss Cookies

You have probably had one of those peanut butter cookies that have a chocolate kiss on top.  Well, what would you think of a recipe that is easier and yummier (if you like chocolate and mint, that is).  Well, for those times when you have no time but want to make a big impact, try this one!

Minty Kiss Cookies 


Equipment:
Cookie Sheets
Either cooking (oil) spray or parchment paper
Mixer
Oven
Spatula
Cooling Rack

Ingredients:
2 eggs
1 chocolate fudge cake mix
1/4 - 1 cup extra flour*
1/3 cup oil
2 tsp peppermint extract
1 package Hershey Kisses (unwrapped)

*The extra flour is not necessary but will make your cookies a bit softer and keep them from spreading out too much (they will retain their shape more).  The reason for the range of amount of flour is different brands of cake mix behave a bit differently.  You want to add enough flour so that your dough is no longer sticky and behaves more like bread dough.

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together the cake mix, four, peppermint extract, oil, and eggs.  Form dough into balls and place onto greased (or parchment paper lined) cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 9 minutes or until done. When you take the cookies out of the oven, place one Kiss on top of each cookie and press down slightly.  After about 5 minutes, remove cookies with a spatula and place on a cooling rack to cool.
