These delightful little cookies are so... nom, nom, nom. Seriously, so good and best of all, so simple! Depending on the size of cookie, this recipe yields 2-3 dozen.
1 spice cake mix*
1 C solid pack pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie mix)
24-36 unwrapped Hershey's Kisses (Or Hugs)**
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare baking sheets with parchment paper, or lightly spray with cooking spray. In mixing bowl combine cake mix & pumpkin; mix until well blended. Batter will be sticky. Using 2 spoons, drop by spoonful onto pan. Bake 14-16 minutes. Lightly press Kiss into center of cookie and let sit on pan a minute or so before transferring to cooling rack. Let Kisses set before transferring to airtight container.
*If you don't have a spice cake mix, you can use a white or yellow mix and just add 1 tsp pumpkin pie spices.
**I use Chocolate Caramel Kisses for these cookies.
TIP: For "sticky" cookie batter, use the back of a spoon dipped in flour to "shape" cookie dough before baking. See picture below.
