I found this recipe on livejournal and I'm just reposting it here. These cookies are really good and really easy to make! I've made two batches in one week....

Kiss Cookies

1 1/4 c. butter, softened
1 c. sugar
2 eggs
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
3 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
1 16oz. pkg chocolate kisses

1.  Peel bag of chocolate kisses. Set aside.
2.  Cream butter; stir in sugar, beating until light and fluffy.
3.  Add eggs and vanilla, blend well.
4.  Stir-in flour.
5.  Take dough and roll into small, slightly squashed balls, placing on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 375F for 10-12 minutes (should still be pale, no browning).
6.  Remove cookies from oven, immediately press one chocolate kiss into the center of each cookie, point side up.
7.  Remove from pan and cool.
Makes about 5-6 dozen.

Notes: The recipe calls for margarine, but I use butter cuz transfats are bad, yo. That just means you need to bake 'em for a little longer than ten minutes, but they'll still be very soft and a bit gooey. The original recipe also tells you to use a cookie press to make them all purty like in the shape of daisies and whatnot, but just between you and me they won't be around long enough to admire so forget it unless you're making them for a banquet or something and you want to impress your friends. I managed to get about 65 cookies out of this recipe, so aim high. Oh, and when pressing the kisses into the cookies, you don't need to press hard; just place them on the top, work your way down the cookie sheet, and then go back and press them in. At that point the kisses will have melted a bit and will goosh into the cookie, permanently cementing them. At one point in the cooling process the kisses will be completely soft and melty, though they will retain their shape. DO NOT put them away until all the kisses are solid again.
