  • 1 package Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1/2 tsp lemon zest
  • 24 Hershey's Candy Cane Kisses


  • Heat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Make sugar cookie dough according to instructions on the package, adding in 1/4 tsp vanilla extract, 1 tbsp four, 1/2 tsp lemon zest. If your package has instructions for 'drop' cookies and 'cutout' cookies use the drop cookies variation.
  • Roll dough into balls that are a teaspoon size. Place dough 2 inches apart on a baking sheet covered in parchment paper.
  • Bake cookies for 10 - 12 minutes, until the edges are just barely golden brown.
  • Remove cookies from the oven and let them cool for 1 minute. Transfer to a wire cooling rack and place 1 Hershey's candy cane kiss in the center of each cookie. Let the cookies cool for 2 - 3 hours before serving or transporting to allow the candies to cool and harden.
