Pumpkin Chai Cookies ~ You're Welcome :-)

 {Google photo}
I know it's the 1st of August, but FALL IS COMING! My favorite time of year! And with the falling temperatures come favorite cold weather comfort foods. 

Because of supply, some things may only be available at certain times of the year. One of those things that we can only get during the early fall is Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses. OH MY. Yes, you heard me right. And they are PERFECT for a little change-up on everyone's favorite Hershey Kiss cookies.

These yummy Pumpkin Chai Cookies make my mouth water just to think of them. Now, admittedly, you CAN make them with regular, yummy Hershey's Kisses, but the Pumpkin Spice ones just MAKE it, know what I mean?

You will need:

~1/2 c. butter; softened to room temperature
~1/2 c. sugar
~1/4 c. Oregaon Chai's Chai Latte Concentrate
~1 large egg
~1 ts. vanilla extract
~1-3/4 c. flour (I use bread flour for a little more fluff and puff)
~1/2 ts. baking soda
~1/8 ts. sea salt
~1/3 ts. chai spice mix (my favorite is from Tastefully Simple)
~1 bag of Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses
~Mixing bowl
~Cookie sheet
~Parchment paper (*optional)

1) In a mixing bowl, combine sugar and butter until fluffy; about 2-3 minutes
2) Blend in the egg, chai concentrate and vanilla; mix thoroughly
3) Blend in flour, baking soda and salt; mix thoroughly
4) Cover bowl with plastic wrap and chill in refrigerator for 1 hour
5) 10-15 minutes before you take the dough out of the frig, pre-heat your oven to 325*, line cookie sheet with parchment paper (*optional)
6) Roll dough into 20-24 1" balls, place onto cookie sheet
7) Sprinkle tops cookies with the chai mix
8) Bake cookies for 12-15 minutes
9) While cookies are baking, unwrap the Kisses
10) When cookies are finished baking, remove them from the oven and IMMEDIATELY gently press the Kisses onto the middle of the cookies; DO NOT TOUCH until the cookies have cooled

Pour yourself a hot cup of your favorite fall flavor of coffee, tea, chai or apple cider. Now, sit down and enjoy the yummy spicey fragrance that will waft through your home while the cookies are baking and then enjoy this wonderful cold weather treat.

By the way . . . You're welcome ;-)

  1. These sound REALLY yummy...I had no idea there was such a thing as Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses! I must live further back in the "sticks" than I thought. lol I'm not really familiar with any of the Chia products you have listed, but I'm going to check them out. I keep the chia seeds on hand all of the time for the overnight oatmeal that I make. So this will be a new experience! Thanks for the introduction, Girlfriend! ;-)

    1. Dianna Dearest ~ This is CHAI not chia. lol. Easy mistake, just the switch of the letters. Chai is a spice, chia is a seed. But . . . chia seeds may be good in this, too.

      Blessings . . .

    2. LOL! Thanks for that helpful bit of information. NOW I know definitely know what to look for! ;-) You are a sweetheart, my friend!

  2. It looks like a great recipe to try.
