Candy Corn Pixies Cookies

The kids and I made these cookies using the new Candy Corn kisses. They are very tasty and colorful. Here's the recipe from the Hershey's website:

Candy Corn Pixies

. 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter or margarine, softened
. 1 cup granulated sugar
. 2 eggs
. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
. 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
. 2 teaspoons baking powder
. 1/4 teaspoon salt
. Yellow and red food colors
. 48 HERSHEY'S KISSES Brand Candy Corn Flavored Candies
. Powdered sugar

1. Beat butter, granulated sugar, eggs and vanilla in large bowl until well blended. Stir together flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to butter mixture, beating until blended.

2. Place about 3/4 cup dough in each of three separate bowls. Add yellow food coloring to one bowl, mixing until color of dough is uniform and close to color of candy piece. Tint another bowl orange using yellow and red food coloring. (I used 5 drops of yellow and 1 drop of red.) Cover; refrigerate doughs about 1 hour or until firm enough to handle.

3. Heat oven to 300° F. Remove wrappers from candies. Taking a small pinch of dough from each bowl, shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in powdered sugar. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.

4. Bake 14 to 16 minutes or until edges are set. Cool about 2 minutes; press candy piece into center of cookie. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. About 4 dozen cookies.
