I know, another Pumpkin recipe!! I can’t stop baking with pumpkin right now and I must say that I am loving every minute of it. The way the house smells is enough to motivate me to bake all the time 🙂 Cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger are probably my favorite beautiful smells coming from the oven, yum!
Here is a fun, simple cookie with lots of spunk. I am such a sucker every time I pass those Holiday kisses, my hands uncontrollably pick them up and put them in my cart. So to use up my favorite holiday kisses, I created this fun and oh so tasty cookie that you are going to love.
Take a peek and happy Fall baking!
Here’s your line-up. Don’t mind that I forgot the 2 eggs for the photo shoot. Was having a blonde moment!
Cream your butter and sugars, add you eggs, vanilla and pumpkin then toss in the dry ingredients 🙂
I just liked this picture 🙂 I need a wall of just my kitchen aid shots!
You know these bad boys. Unwrap 35 or so 🙂
Quarter each little kiss.
Toss in your tasty chocolate chunks….
Along with those kisses!
Break out your muffin top pan, scoop in your dough, press down and bake! (you can also use a normal baking sheet and make tradition cookies with a cookie scoop with this recipe, both delish)
