Pumpkin Spice Kisses

ReDo on the cookies using less Pumpkin and rolling them in Raw Sugar.

This recipe came from a great sight called Picky Palate

I tried the cookies and they taste great but mine did not turn out as beautiful as shown on the site.

Pumpkin Spice Blossoms

1 Spice Cake Mix 18.25 oz
14 oz can Libby’s Pumpkin
½ Cup sanding sugar (I used Raw sugar on some of my cookies)
1 bag Hershey’s Pumpkin Spice Kisses (could not find so I used the Hersey with Peanut Butter, and Hershey's with Carmel)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a stand or electric mixer beat the cake mix and pumpkin until well combined, about 45 seconds. With a cookie scoop, scoop dough and roll top half in sanding sugar (dough is sticky) then place onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet. Bake for 11-13 minutes, or until cooked through. Quickly transfer to a cooling rack and immediately press kisses into the center of each cookie. I immediately place cooling rack into the fridge for 15 minutes so the kisses don’t melt. About 36 cookies.

***Julie's notes****

I found the cookies to be too wet to roll in the sugar so I sprinkled it on some of mine. When I make them again, I don't the recipe needs the whole can of Libby's. I will add a little at a to the cake mix until it resemble a cookie dough, then roll in sugar. They are so EASY, and taste really yummy perfect for fall, easy to do with kids.
