I love the swirled look! And I love the pumpkin spice kisses! I haven't been able to keep them around long enough to put them into anything ;) Stress eating of candy corn definitely happened yesterday in an eleventh-hour-paper-due-any-minute kind of way haha.
Good luck with the move!
Pumpkin and Cinnamon...perfect Autumn flavours!
Can I please love the Quidditch match and Sorting Hat references? Like, really, love. Please post this on Facebook again for the sole purpose of allowing me to MEGA-LIKE it. And while you're at it, please don't hesitate to send a frozen batch my way through snail mail :] because these look absolutely delish.
What a fun post! I totally have to hunt some of these kisses down, and try this recipe!
Thanks for sharing this!
Love both versions, this post made me crack up too!
Oh my gosh! Those look amazing. MUST SHOP NOW! hmmmm hubby just left work, wonder if I can get him to stop on the way home for these kisses. lol
Great looking recipe. Yum. Thanks
These look delicious. Are you in a sugar coma yet from the candy corn? LOL. Really enjoy your blog.
How have I not seen the pumpkin spice kisses?? Where have these been all my life?
Good luck with the move!
Seriously need to consider moving to America. Why of why do we not get these pumpkin spice thingies in the UK?
These look amazing! I've never seen pumpkin spice hershey kisses before... you have opened my eyes to the multitude of opportunity in this world!
hi i love reading your blog but i can never make any of the recipes because it takes me forever to find all the correct measurements, I'm from england and o have no idea what a cup is equivalent to. I would really love it if you could maybe put alternative measurement next to the cups like ounces or grams

I just made these cookies for a school Halloween party tonight and they are delicious!! I am usually a chocolate kind of girl but these are fabulous!! Kisses always make everything yummy!! I added 2T of milk because my dough was a little dry. I will probably add 2-3 T next time. These are a great treat for the fall holidays!!
Hi...I made these in the mini muffin pan...baked for 8 minutes...I placed the kisses point side down and drizzled with melted white chocolate. Similar to the peanut butter dough and mini Reese's cup blossoms. They were a big hit, thank you for this great recipe! Karen
I just did the same with the mini muffin tin and then took a toothpick to swirl yhe kiss once inside the cookie and melted! Great recipe!
Just made these! So delicious!! Thanks for the great recipe!.
I love the idea of letting the kisses melt and swirling the chocolate! We featured this recipe in our Feature Friday blog post for Cinnamon and Spice Desserts! We hope you can visit! http://returntothetable.net/recipes/cinnamon-spic...
I made these last week and they are PHENOMENAL!! Thank you so much for a new family fave!
This is really great pumkin recipe. I love it very much.
I roll the cookies in cinnamon and sugar just to add a little extra flavor. Delicious!
Pumpkin spice is very good for you. http://youngbodyrebootsystem.com/
I literally do not have my act together.
I made these thick, sugary cinnamon kiss cookies in September. Then a whole cluster of real life situations happened.
Like... I went to a wedding.
A wedding in a beautiful vineyard where maybe I learned that if you drink several glasses of crisp, sweet champagne on an empty stomach there's a good chance that you'll end up barefooted in a muddy vineyard plucking fat purple grapes off the vines and declaring them, \"SERIOUSLY THESE ARE THE BEST GRAPES EVER.\"
I signed a lease on an apartment with my boyfriend. We move in next Wednesday. In nine days. I'm not stress-eating candy corn. I'm not.
There were football games. Lots of them. Real ones. You know, the kind where you sit in the bleachers and try to understand what a tight end is... while secretly pretending you're at a Quidditch match. There was a sand and sun-filled week in Hawaii where I did absolutely nothing but nap by the pool, tuck flowers in my hair, and order mai tais for breakfast.
And now there are pumpkin patches and Christmas trees in the world. It's October. I bought Christmas ornaments today. When did summer end? Is it Halloween? Is it winter? What, what are we doing for Thanksgiving?
Whatever. Let's just make cinnamon cookies. Pumpkin spice kisses. Have you put these in your life? These little orange morsels taste like fall. Like October and November-times. You know: pumpkin spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, white chocolate. Fall things.
These chewy cinnamon cookies are crazy good. The first batch around I made them like so: Plain cookies. Stick a kiss in it. Honestly, I'm not trying to make things complicated around here.
... but then the kisses melted and mistakes were made.
They ended up looking like little orange Sorting Hats.
So I swirled the melted kisses and made it fancy and totally on purpose.
But something was missing.
Can I share some secrets?
Freeze the Kisses.
Roll everything in sugar.
Yes, this is totally breakfast.
And always, always drink less champagne.
... unless you're moving in nine days. Then do your thing and pass the candy corn.
Cinnamon Pumpkin Spice Kiss Blossoms
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups granulated 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
1-3 tablespoons milk, if dough is crumbly
1 package Hershey's Pumpkin Spice Kisses
1/2 cup granulated sugar, for rolling cookies in
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 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, flatten just slightly with the back of a spatula (if you want them less pillow-y) and allow to cool three minutes. Gently push a frozen pumpkin spice kiss into the center. The Kisses will get shiny and start to melt after a few minutes... at this point I popped the whole baking sheet into the freezer until the chocolate set to keep that traditional-looking blossom cookies...
... or you can let the Kisses melt and swirl the melted chocolate with a toothpick for a pretty marbled effect like this. Or both! Definitely do both.
Makes about 3 dozen cookies
