Pumpkin spice kiss cookies

I can't wait for fall. The cooler weather. The holidays. Hot cocoa. And, of course, pumpkin everything! I love pumpkin in pretty much any form. Imagine my excitement when I saw these in Target last weekend, I may have made some super sonic squeaky noises.

Then I saw these cookies on Pinterest, from Sprinkle Some Sunshine, that stick Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses in the middle. Perfect.

What you need:
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
2 3/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp ginger
Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses

Preheat oven to 375.

Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add in the vanilla and eggs and beat well.
In another bowl, mix together the flour, powder, salt and spices. Add dry ingredients to butter mixture and beat until just combined.

Scoop onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Don't do anything with the pumpkin spice kisses yet! Bake 8-10 minutes.

Allow the cookies to cool for a bit, otherwise your kisses will get all melty. Push an (unwrapped, duh) kiss into the middle of each cookie. That's it! This made a little over two dozen cookies for me and took all of 15 minutes.

They end up kinda crusty on the outside and chewy on the inside and taste like a sugar cookie with something special. Enjoy!
