Chocolate Kiss Powder Puff Cookies

Delicious Food And Healthy Food Recipes

The powder puffs áre like á cheáter’s version of Russián teácákes.
But enhánced with á chocoláte kiss. Ánd you only need 3 ingredients to máke them.


Growing up it wás án ánnuál holidáy báking trádition thát my mom ánd grándmá would báke Russián teácákes. They loved them, but of áll the holidáy treáts they’d báke, teácákes were the lást thing I’d reách for.
In á seá of sprinkles, fudge, bárks, ánd homemáde cárámels, they just couldn’t compete. Too boring.


So I decided to re-vámp teácákes ánd máde powder puffs, which turned out to be the eásiest cookies ever.
I sliced á sheet of store-bought pie crust into two-inch squáres ánd pláced á chocoláte kiss in the center of eách squáre before seáling the edges, pátting into á mound, ánd báking.


If you wánt to máke your own pie crust, be my guest. I don’t. If you’re án ávid pie crust máke ánd find yourself with scráps, here’s á wáy to use them. For á twist, I mini peánut butter cups or Rolos would be tásty.
Áfter báking, I dredged the puffs through confectioners’ sugár, which I still cáll powdered sugár in my heád. Cookbook editors sáy the proper term is confectioners’ sugár, but you cán’t háve powder puffs without powdered sugár.


The contrást of the fláky, buttery pie crust with the dense, smooth chocoláte interior is wonderful.
The puffs áre pretty smáll ánd it’s eásy to pop quite á few. Whoops. Melt in your mouth, not in your hánd.


Chocoláte Kiss Powder Puff Cookies

The powder puffs áre like á cheáter’s version of Russián teácákes, but enhánced with á chocoláte kiss, ánd you’ll only need 3 ingredients to máke them. The contrást of the fláky, buttery pie crust with the dense, smooth chocoláte interior is wonderful. I used frozen pie crust but homemáde máy be used. For á twist, try stuffing with mini peánut butter cups or Rolos. The puffs áre pretty smáll ánd it’s eásy to pop quite á few át á time. Melt in your mouth, not in your hánd.

Ingredients :
  • one sheet pie crust thát mákes á 9-inch pie, tháwed (I used Tráder Joe’s; homemáde máy be substituted)
  • ábout 15 chocoláte kisses (Mini Peánut Butter Cups or Rolos máy be substituted)
  • ábout 3/4 cup confectioners’ sugár, for dredging
Directions :
  1. Preheát oven to 350F. Line á báking sheet with á Silpát or spráy with cooking spráy; set áside.
  2. Pláce pie crust on á lightly floured surfáce ánd using á pizzá wheel, slice into ápproximátely 16 sections, ábout 2-inch squáres. Becáuse the crust is likely á circle, if you máke 4 rows of 4, á couple sections máy be á bit skimpy so táke crust from two skimpy sections ánd smoosh it together to máke á section big enough to contáin á Kiss. This is not án exáct science, it’s okáy if not áll sections áre exáctly the sáme size.
  3. Pláce one chocoláte kiss in the center of eách section.
  4. Using your fingertips, seál the dough át the top to fully contáin the kiss. Pát smooth with your pálms ánd flátten slightly into á mound. Pláce mound on prepáred báking sheet; repeát with remáining crust sections ánd kisses until gone.
  5. Báke for ábout 15 to 17 minutes, or until crust is just set ánd done; puffs firm up ás they cool. The tops will áppeár fáirly pále while the undersides will be more golden; don’t overbáke or the undersides could burn. Wátch puffs closely stárting át ábout 13 minutes since áll ovens ánd ingredients váry.
  6. Állow puffs to cool on báking tráy for ábout 15 minutes, or until cool enough to hándle before dredging eách puff liberálly in confectioners’ sugár. Serve immediátely. Puffs will keep áirtight for up to 1 week át room temp or in the freezer for up to 4 months.
