After Halloween we had a leftover bag of Hershey Kisses to use up. I decided to have some fun making our favorite Kiss cookies with my daughter but I wanted to give them a Halloween bent. Instead of making them peanut butter I made them pumpkin flavored. Then, when they came out of the oven and we put the Kiss in we also used some of our leftover candy corn to place around the base of it so it looked like a turkey! We got such a kick out of the funny festive look. It is just the cookie to make again in a couple of weeks!
Pumpkin Kiss Turkeys
cup granulated sugar, plus more for rolling
cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
cup pumpkin puree
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon kosher salt
24 Hersheys Kisses
About xx Candy Corn
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets and set aside. Sift together the flour, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice and salt and set aside.
In an electric mixer beat the sugar and butter until fluffy. Then beat in the egg, vanilla, and pumpkin puree until smooth.
With the mixer on low add in the flour mixture until just combined. Then, pinch off pieces of the dough and form balls about 1 1/2 inches in diameter and rolls in the granulated sugar. Place each ball about 2-inchs apart on a lined baking sheet and bake for about 12 minutes, or until the cookies lightly browned around the edges.
Allow the cookies to cool for one minute. Then, place the Hersheys kisses on top of each cookie and press down slightly. Immediately form about 5 candy corn around it in a fan-like form to make it look like a turkey. Cool the cookies completely before serving.
