Candy Cane Kiss Sugar Cookies

Delicious Candy Cane Kiss Sugar Cookies { } Soft sugar cookies topped with sprinkles and candy cane hershey kisses.

Hello again, Lil’ Luna friends! I have such a fun recipe to share today! I think holiday treats are one of my favorite things about this season, and these candy cane kiss sugar cookies are extra fun and festive. I made them last week with my six year old daughter, and she went crazy over them. We couldn’t find any Christmas sprinkles that would work in my giant sprinkles stash (yes, I totally have one of those!) so we dipped into the Valentine’s sprinkles, and I think they actually turned out really cute and Christmasy!

Besides how fun and festive they look, they’re also really yummy to eat! The cookie itself is crisp on the outside, and soft and buttery on the inside. And the candy cane kiss on top makes them extra delicious and fun. I’m probably in the minority here, but I like the look of the melted kisses better than the intact kiss shape. If you like the kiss shape, just pop the cookies in the freezer for a little bit after you add the kisses, and they should firm up instead of melting. Either way, these cookies are both festive and tasty!

  • 10 tbsp butter softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • sprinkles
  • 24 Hershey's Candy Cane kisses


  • Preheat oven to 350. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment or spray lightly with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together butter and sugar. Beat in egg yolks and vanilla. Add flour, baking powder, and salt, and mix until just combined.
  • Roll the dough into balls slightly bigger than a tablespoon. The dough will be thick but should roll into a ball shape with the heat of your hands.
  • Roll each ball of dough in sprinkles and place on prepared baking sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes. Cookies will look under baked.
  • Let cool 5 minutes after removing from the oven, then place a kiss in the center of each cookie.

  1. It is baking soda or powder? The ingredients call for powder but the instructions say soda. And is it bad if there are egg whites in there? 🙂

  2. 5 stars
    These look so good! Do you think these cookies can be put in the freezer? This season gets so frantic & making treats ahead of time definitely helps! Thanks.

  3. 1 star
    Followed the recipe exactly and after 8 min my cookies are a flat mess! Will finish baking them as best I can but this in no way delivers the results in the photo! 🙁 Probably way too much butter?
