Hershey's Kisses Macaroon Cookies

Have I told you that I love coconut?  Huge fan and lover of all things coconut. So when I originally saw a picture of these on the back of a Hershey Kiss bag I knew these had to be created.  I loved the idea, but not the recipe.  So I changed it up a bit and came up with this.  Let me be the first to tell you...Fabulous!  The cookie is so soft and moist and topped with the chocolate kiss.  Hello y'all!  Just a perfect combo. 

Hershey's Kisses Macaroon Cookies

1/3 cup butter or magarine, softened
1/3 cup sour cream
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg yolk
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
5 cups sweetened coconut flakes, divided
about 36 Hershey's Kisses

1. Beat butter, sour cream and sugar in large bowl until well blended.  Add egg yolk and vanilla.  Beat well.  Stir together flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to butter mixture, beating until well blended.  Stir in 3 cups coconut. 
2.  Cover, refrigerate 1 hour or until firm enough to handle.  Remove wrappers from chocolate kisses.  Heat oven to 350.  Shape dough into 1-inch balls; roll balls in remaining 2 cups coconut.  Place on ungreased cookie sheet. 
3.  Bake 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned.  Remove from oven; immediately press a chocolate kiss on top of each cookie.  Cool 1 minute; carefully remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.  Cool completely.  Makes about 3 dozen cookies.

What a great idea!! I love coconut and chocolate together! I have a macaroon recipe where I drizzle the chocolate over the top, but these little guys are too cute!
