Pumpkin Spice Kiss Cookies

I haven’t wanted to be anywhere near food prep since June when I found out I was pregnant, but last weekend I got the urge to bake. What did I make? Cookies, of course! I still don’t want to cook meat (sorry Adam) but sweets, I can handle.  I usually only see the blossom cookies at Christmastime but I like breaking the rules. Have you seen these pumpkin spice kisses in your local store?

I’ll confess that I didn’t love them on their own..but paired with a simple pumpkin spice cookie made them perfect. This recipe is extremely easy and makes about 36 cookies total.

Pumpkin Spice Kiss Cookies

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated organic sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 4 tablespoons almond milk
  • 1 package Hershey’s Pumpkin Spice Kisses
  • 1/3 cup granulated organic sugar, for rolling cookies in

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Unwrap pumpkin spice Kisses and place them in a small bowl in the freezer until ready to use. Place 1/2 cup granulated sugar in a bowl for rolling cookies in; set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Add vanilla and eggs and beat until light and fluffy.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. Gradually add in small batches to the butter mixture, mixing until just combined. If dough is crumbly and not coming together, add 1 tablespoon of milk at a time until dough forms.
  • Scoop dough into 1 tablespoon-sized balls, roll in sugar, and place on baking sheet. Bake for 7-8 minutes, or until done.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool three minutes.
  • Gently push a frozen pumpkin spice kiss into the center.
  • Let cool completely
