There are two popular ways to cook these cookies. Take your pick:

Bake 8 minutes. Remove from oven; press a chocolate kiss candy into the center of each cookie. Return to oven and bake another 2 minutes or until cookies are light brown. Remove from oven and remove from cookie sheet; let cookies cool on wire cooling racks.


Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven and immediately press a chocolate kiss into the center of each cookie (cookie will crack around edges). Remove from cookie sheet and let cookies cool on wire cooling racks.
