Then I placed red and green maraschino cherries on some of the cookies and pressed them down gently into the dough.

For the cookies that I wanted to top with Hershey’s mini kisses, I left them bare because the chocolate has to be added after baking.

I placed the baking sheet in the oven and baked the cookies until they were golden brown around the bottom edge.

After I removed the cookies from the oven, I placed the Hershey’s mini kisses on the bare cookies and pressed them down gently.
