Best Chocolate Kisses Cookies ever!

And apparently there is a story behind these cookies....
The original recipe calls for Hersheys kisses. Ther aren't easy to find here in Israel. So my freind Neta made them but used chocolate coins instead, came her friend Amira, she didn't have peanut butter (which is called for in the original recipe) so she used - walnuts! Her Walnut chocolate coin recipe is the best!! then came I (after pleading with my neighbor to bring me hersheys kisses from his last trip to the states) and returned the kiss to the cookies which is now totally different from the original. But i definately think its a much better cookie due to the fact that it has both walnuts which are healthier and whole wheat flour which is the best!
Walnut Chocolate Cookies with a Kiss / Amira
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup finely chopped walnuts
1 cup brown sugar
1 Tbsp. honey
1 egg
150 grams butter, softened at room temp
1 tsp vanilla
chocolate kisses
In bowl sift together the flours and baking soda.
In a mixer mix together the butter and sugar on high speed appor 2-3 minutes. Add vanilla and egg, continue beating. Lower speed and add the flour mixture till well combined.
Roll walnut sized balls and place on cookie sheet lined with parchement paper. Stick a kiss in the middle of each "cookie ball".
Bake at 180C for approx 8-10 minutes, till cookies are golden color.
I made two batches over the weekend. One batch was taken to my brother and the other was made for home after kid begging....None are left.
