Gather your ingredients.
Soften 1 cup of butter or margarine. If you are making vegan cookies, use vegan margarine. I used smart balance: flaxseed oil for a batch and it turned out lovely.
Add butter to blender and blend until creamy.
Slowly add in 1 1/2 c of sugar. I modified the original recipe and used 1 1/4 c of white sugar and 1/4 c of brown sugar for a bit of flavor.
I added 1/4 cup of brown sugar, but you can just use white sugar if you prefer.
Cream the sugar and butter mixture.
Add 3 total eggs to the mixture, 1 at a time. If you are making vegan cookies, use 1/4 cup of vegetable oil per egg (3/4 cup total)
Add the eggs one at a time and cream the mixture.
Add 1 tsp of vanilla (or if you are like me and love vanilla 2 tsp)
Add 3 tsp of baking powder to the mixture. The original recipe called for baking soda/cream of tartar, but baking powder has 1/4 tsp of baking soda and 2/3 tsp cream of tartar per tsp.
Add 1/2 tsp of salt to the mixture.
Add 3 1/2 cups of flour slowly to the mixture and mix until creamy.
Preheat the oven to 375 Fahrenheit.
Put a bit of sugar on a plate.
Spoon out one tsp of cookie dough.
Roll the dough around in the sugar and evenly coat
Put cookies on a non greased pan.
Put in the oven for 8 minutes.
When the cookies come out, make sure to add the Hershey kisses. A normal bag of kisses worked for the full batch. If you are making vegan cookies, make sure to use vegan dark chocolate or...
Make sugar cookies or snicker doodles. I used 1/4 cup of sugar and cinnamon mixed to the batch to make snicker doodles. These cookies were the vegan batch and man, do they taste amazing.
