Candy Cane Blossom Cookies

From The Taste of Home Magazine
  1. 1 cup butter, softened
  2. 1 cup sugar
  3. 1 egg
  4. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  5. 3 cups all purpose flour
  6. 2 teaspoons baking powder
  7. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  8. 4 candy canes finely crushed
  9. 48 candy cane kisses (or milk chocolate kisses or chocolate mint patties)
In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.  Beat in egg and vanilla.  In another bowl mix the flour baking powder and salt; gradually beat into the creamed mixture .
Shape into 1 inch balls; roll in the crushed candy canes.  Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 10 – 12 minutes or until bottoms are golden brown.  Immediately press a kiss into the center of each cookie.  (have kisses unwrapped to save time)  Remove from pans, cool on wire rack.
