½ lb. softened butter
½ cup granulated sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
1 cup finely chopped pecans or walnuts
1 pkg. Hershey's kisses
Beat the butter, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add the flour and nuts, blend well. Chill the dough for approximately 1 hour.
Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Remove foil from kisses. Shape the dough around the kisses, then lightly rolling them to form a ball, completely covering the kiss. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet. and bake for 12 minutes, until set but not brown.
While warm, roll the cookies in powdered sugar. Transfer to a wire rack until completely cool.
Makes about 30 cookies (which leaves some extra kisses for the cook!)
