My mom made these for our family every Christmas. We would come home from school and the glass tree cookie jar would be filled with these powdered sugar wonders!
1 cup butter, softened to room temperature
1/2 cup powdered sugar, sifted
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 3/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 package (9oz.) chocolate candy kisses
Cream butter until light and fluffy. Add 1/2 cup powdered sugar and mix well. Add flour and cinnamon gradually mixing with a spatula until well blended. Chill dough for one hour. Mold 1 Tablespoon cookie dough around each chocolate kiss, covering kiss completely. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet at 375 degrees until cookies just turn golden around the edges, about 15-18 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes on the cookie sheet then remove to wire rack and roll in powdered sugar while warm. When completely cool, roll in powdered sugar again.
Yield: 2 dozen cookies
