You may laugh when you see what the ingredients are in this cookie recipe. What I’ll say now is, it starts off with a tube of sugar cookie dough. Yup. Then the magic begins when you add in a few of your own ingredients to make the perfect cookie.
What I also really like about this cookie recipe is, it’s versatile in what you put on top of each cookie.
The two photos I posted were both topped with a mini Hershey Kiss. One I sprinkled cinnamon sugar and the other left plain.
You can swap out the Kiss for some sprinkles and also M&Ms work well too. They look pretty and taste yummy. The perfect cookie!
Let’s face it, going to the store and buying ready-made cookie dough is hard to resist when you want your cookies fast and easy to make, especially on a weekday.
Well, here’s a way to make packaged cookie dough taste homemade. This may become your go-to cookie recipe too. The skies the limit on what to decorate them with.
Give this easy recipe a try. It’s really good, I promise!
Recipe note… I made small cookies to make a batch of 48 cookies. You can easily make larger cookies. I would suggest to use a regular size Hershey Kiss if you were to make a batch of 24 cookies.

Hugs and Kisses Cookies XOXO
You will love these Hugs and Kisses Cookies. I call this a semi - homemade recipe. This is my go-to cookie recipe that’s easy enough for a weeknight dessert and great to bring along for large crowds too.
- 1 tube refrigerated Pillsbury sugar cookie dough
- 48 Hershey’s Mini Kisses — found with the other baking chips
- 2 tbsp all purpose flour
- 1 tbsp powdered sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla extract or 1 tsp almond extract
- 1 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1 to 2 tbsp cinnamon sugar mixture, optional
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and have 3 cookie sheets ready, lined with parchment paper; set aside. In a large mixing bowl, add the whole tube of the cookie dough along with the flour, powdered sugar, cinnamon and the extract. Mix well with clean hands or a wooden spoon. When all mixed, chill dough in fridge for about 10 minutes. Remove from fridge and roll up into 48 little balls of dough; about a teaspoon or so each. Place on cookie sheets. Bake about 9-10 minutes on the middle rack. After 5 minutes, turn the pan around for even baking. Remember, we always bake one cookie sheet at a time. Cookies will be done when they are puffed up, set in the center, and the bottom is light brown. Transfer cookie sheet to cooling rack and gently press a mini kiss in the center of each cookie. Cool for about 3-5 minutes. After that, you can slide the parchment paper off the cookie sheet onto the cooling rack and let the cookies firm and set. Repeat steps 5 through 7 until all of the cookies are done. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar lightly over each cookie. Enjoy!
