Truffle Cookie Kisses, a simple dessert recipe. Cookies with cocoa, powdered sugar coating.

These have always been a favorite to bake around the holidays. One batch makes a lot and they stay fresh for a while. If you like walnuts it’s great to chop them up into pieces and add pieces into the middle of the cookie, totally optional though. If you want to keep the walnut ones separate from the rest you can shape the walnut ones into a ball instead of the kisses shape. This way you will know which ones have walnuts and which don’t.
