These came out pretty as the picture and delicious too! I did chill the dough for an hour or so. Great to make with my four year old who loved helping unwrap the kisses, roll the balls in sugar and press the kisses into the cookies when they came out of the oven!

Hi Meg, You were right the first time on the flour, it should be 3 1/2 cups

To Jacks who doesn't know how to double 1 3/4. You were right the first time. It should be 3 1/2. I love these cookies. The most time consuming part is unwrapping the kisses. LOL.

We always made this but, after firmly inserting the Hershey kiss we put it back in the oven for 1 - 2 minutes max. Pull out as soon as you see a hint of bubbles on the surface of the kiss or the tip darkens. It changes the texture of the kiss in a very pleasing way. Try it. (If you leave the kiss in too long the chocolate can become grainy. Still tastes good.)
