In a nice twist on the peanut butter chocolate kiss cookie, this recipe from Jan Hall, Suamico, steers clear of peanut butter in favor of coffee, cinnamon and Brazil nuts.

The flavor of this cookie earned it a spot as a finalist in the USA TODAY NETWORK-Wisconsin Holiday Cookie Recipe Contest prepared by Fox Valley Technical College culinary arts students.

RECIPE:Lemon Raspberry Holiday Delights

RECIPE:Frosted Sour Cream Cookies

RECIPE:Maple Pecan Tea Cakes

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon cinnamon

¾ cup sugar

¼ cup firmly packed brown sugar

½ cup shortening

1 egg

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 cup chopped Brazil nuts

36 to 42 pieces milk chocolate candy kisses

In large mixer bowl combine flour, instant coffee, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, sugars, shortening, egg and vanilla extract. Blend well with mixer.

Stir in ½ cup of Brazil nuts, mix thoroughly.

Chill dough for easier handling.
