pumpkin spice cheesecake blossoms


Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake Blossoms

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, still cold
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup cinnamon sugar (1/2 cup sugar + 1 tsp cinnamon)
  • 3.4 ounce cheesecake flavor pudding mix
  • pumpkin spice Hershey kisses (about 4 dozen)

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Mix together butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until smooth
  3. Beat in eggs until creamy
  4. Mix in vanilla, salt and baking soda
  5. Mix in flour, and pudding mix until dough forms and chill for 10 minutes
  6. Scoop about a tablespoon of dough and roll into ball
  7. Roll each ball in cinnamon sugar mixture to coat
  8. Place on cookie sheet about 2 inches apart and bake for 9 minutes
  9. Press a Hershey Kiss on top of each cookie immediately after removing from oven and cool

*tip - Ensure your butter is still cold, so you can form a good dough ball.  If it's not good and cold, chill dough for 1/2 hour before.

*tip - I found that these kisses melted quicker than regular chocolate kisses, so I put them in the freezer for a bit before pressing in the cookies.  Skip this if you're ok with them melting...they are still delicious :)

Ok.  I made these over the weekend and wow, just wow!!  The cheesecake pudding makes the cookie really moist and then topped off by a soft, gooey pumpkin spice kiss it's well...perfect :)  Save it for your next special occasion or make them just because :)  They are scrumptious!
