Perfect For Fall: Chai Pumpkin Spice Thumbprint Cookies

I saw the new Hershey’s Pumpkin Spice Kisses at the store yesterday.

I eyed them with suspicion–it took me years to accept white chocolate Hershey’s Kisses–and now they’re tampering with the formula again?


Ooooo…Hershey.  Tamper away.  I searched for a recipe to incorporate these little puppies, so here you are.  I’m a fanatic for hot Chai Spiced Tea, and if you are, too: make a double batch.

Combine the butter and sugar in the bowl of your stand mixer and cream at medium speed until fluffy, or with a hand mixer, for about 2-3 minutes. Add the egg, chai concentrate,  and the vanilla, mix until combined. Add the flour, baking soda, and salt, scraping down the sides of the mixing bowl as necessary. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

Using your hands, roll the dough into 22 to 24 1 inch round balls. Place the dough balls on parchment paper lined baking sheets and sprinkle chai spice mix lightly over cookies.

Bake the cookies for 12-15 minutes. Meanwhile, unwrap kisses.

Remove the cookies from the oven and immediately place pumpkin kisses in the center of each cookie. Don’t touch or the kisses will turn into puddles! Cool completely.  Sprinkle with freshly ground nutmeg for garnish.
