I had this “Brown Eyed Susans” recipe it seems like forever, ever since I got my first Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook. I don’t remember the year, and the front pages are gone now.

Using the Hershey Kisses of course altered things a bit. The original recipe called for chocolate mint candy wafers. Now anyone who knows me knows I don’t like mint, I will take it in toothpaste, but not with my food. And that’s why I never made this recipe. It also called for pressing the candy wafers into the dough prior to baking. Upon reflection I thought it would be simpler and much neater to press the Hershey Kisses into the hot cookies after baking… Well they turned out lovely, as lovely as my beautiful brown eyed daughter, Susan is. These are dedicated to her.

1-3/4 cups flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 cups butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 pkg. Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Kisses

• Whisk together the flour, salt and the baking powder and set aside.
• Beat the butter and sugar for 4 minutes until light and fluffy.
• Add the egg and vanilla extract; beat to combine.
• Add the flour mixture to the butter and stir until flour is fully incorporated.
• Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and place in the fridge to chill for 1/2 hour.
• Remove from fridge.
• With the plastic wrap still around it, shape the dough into a 1-1/2 inh diameter roll.
• Place in the freezer for 15-20 minutes.
• Remove and quickly slice the dough roll into 36 rounds.
• Place rounds on parchment lined cookie sheets.
• Bake at 400F for 8-10 minutes.
• Remove from oven and press an unwrapped chocolate kiss into the center of every cookie.
• Move the cookies from the cookie sheet to a cooling rack.
  Yields 3 dozen cookies, just right for a bag of Hersey’s Kisses.
