This is a guest post from Sammi of Grounded & Surrounded

I love recipes with minimal ingredients, especially cookie recipes. I just knew these fun XOXO Cookies would be a hit because of their simplicity and overall cuteness! I don’t know about you, but I rarely plan out my cookie baking. It is usually on a whim or I am in a rush and need to have a treat to serve quickly.  These cookies are just what I need in my baking “back pocket”.

If you are needing the perfect cookie to celebrate love these are it! Whether it is Valentine’s Day or your anniversary, these are the cookies to bake! You can customize the color of cookie or omit the food coloring all together, add your favorite sprinkles to the batter, and use your favorite flavor of Hershey Hugs or Kisses.

Step 3: Preheat oven to 350F. Roll 1 Tbsp (or less) dough into ball and generously roll in powdered sugar. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment. The cookies will spread, so leave at least 1 inch spacing.

Step 5: Remove from oven and allow the cookies to cool for 1-2 minutes. Then place an unwrapped Kiss or Hug in the center of each cookie.

    I just finished making them this snowy Saturday afternoon. I am no baker–and these turned out perfect and look like you really fussed over them. Adorable and delicious. They can certainly be modified for any holiday or occasion.
