  • In another bowl, mix flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir or beat into butter mixture until well blended.

  • Put remaining 1/4 cup granulated sugar in a shallow bowl. Shape dough into 1-inch balls, then roll in sugar to coat. Place 1 1/2 inches apart on buttered or cooking parchment- lined 12- by 15-inch baking sheets.

  • Bake cookies in a 350° oven until slightly darker brown, 8 to 10 minutes; if baking more than one pan at a time, switch pan positions halfway through baking. Press a chocolate candy kiss into the center of each cookie (dough may crack). Continue to bake until chocolate is shiny and soft, about 3 minutes longer.

  • Using a wide spatula, transfer the cookies to racks to cool completely.
