PUMPKIN SPICE BLOSSOMS
1 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup white sugar, divided
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups flour
1/3 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
36 Hershey's Pumpkin Spice Kisses, unwrapped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. With an electric mixer, cream together the butter and 2/3 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in the vanilla, then the salt. Mix in the flour until the dough comes together. In a small bowl, mix 1/3 cup white sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Roll the dough into 1-inch balls, then roll in sugar and spice mixture. Place on ungreased cookie sheets and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until lightly browned. Immediately press a pumpkin spice kiss into the center of each cookie (the cookie will crack around the edges). Remove cookies to a wire rack to cool completely. Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
These cute little cookies are were inspired by the classic Peanut Butter Blossom Cookie. The buttery shortbread cookie base with a dusting of cinnamon and nutmeg is the perfect accompaniment for the Pumpkin Spice Kisses--which are really tasty, by the way. I like to buy a few extra bags and keep them in the freezer for later. My family loved these cinnamon and spice flavored cookies. I think they were gone within 24 hours!
