We love everything pumpkin when September rolls around. But really, these Pumpkin Hershey’s Kiss Cookies are great all year long. We stock up on canned pumpkin to get us through the whole year.
Our love for pumpkin runs deep. We love the taste of pumpkin blended with cinnamon in baked goodies. These cookies are great for a party, bbq, or family dinner.
There are few things we love as much as baking in the Fall. When the weather starts getting cooler, all we want to do is get cozy in some sweat pants and eat warm pumpkin treats. These cookies are perfect for that.
We made a few small changes from my Grandma’s Pumpkin Snickerdoodles and these babies were born!
Other Hershey’s Kiss options
We added regular milk chocolate Herhey’s kisses to our Pumpkin Hershey’s Kiss cookies. But if you have a favorite Herhey’s Kiss and you feel it blends well with pumpkin flavor – go ahead and add it.
Here are a few Hershey’s Kisses that we think will go well with these cookies.
- Milk Chocolate with Almond Kisses
- Pumpkin Spice Kisses
- Vanilla Creme Filled Kisses
- Caramel Filled Kisses
- Special Dark Kisses
- Hugs Kisses
Spices that go well with pumpkin recipes:
These Pumpkin Hershey’s Kiss cookies are easy to tweak with spices to get the perfect flavor you love with your pumpkin. You can easily add the spices that you so often find in Pumpkin Pie.
Here are a few of our favorites:
- Pumpkin Pie Spice
We love pumpkin pie spice because it is the perfect blend of most of these spices in one container. But if you have a preference for a certain spice, add it in “to taste” and you’ll love these cookies.
We love the taste of these cookies with the amounts indicated in the recipe.
We think you will also love our Peanut Butter Cookie Cups. So easy and delicious!
