These Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter Blossoms are a perfect cookie for fall.
A pumpkin spice-peanut butter cookie topped with a Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kiss making it ideal for your Thanksgiving Dessert table or for your next holiday cookie exchange.
I loved Peanut Butter Blossoms growing up, my mom never made them but her best friend, Connie did. And she didn’t just make them at Christmas, she made them all year long. These are one of my favorite cookies. And something I really love to do with these cookies, is I pull them out a minute early, add the Hershey Kiss then stick back in the oven for 1 minute with the Hershey Kisses on top. The chocolate comes out warm, but not completely melted. Oh man, eat one of these suckers warm and you will be in heaven. Oh, add a cold glass of milk….okay I a drooling now.
When I saw the Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses this year, I knew I would be making them into a blossom type of cookie, and so glad I did. I love the addition of the pumpkin spice to the dough, as it doesn’t let the peanut butter over play the cookie, this is such a great balance of flavors.
Go out and grab a couple of bags of these Kisses today, so you can make them tomorrow.
Enjoy!

Kids review: They loved them, it is always so fun to watch them eat any type of blossom cookies. Most of the kids will eat around the Hershey Kiss, then eat it last but my sons Cannon & Madden eat the Hershey Kiss of the top and then sometimes eat the cookie. Cookie eating awesomeness.
