I had to make my pumpkin oatmeal cookies with these Hershey Kiss Pumpkin Spice kisses. One of those things just know in your heart. Ha ha. These cookies have more of a cake-like light texture. This recipes makes a ton of cookies. So delish and perfect with some hot apple cider on a chilly fall day.
1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour (King Arthur’s)
1/2 cup of whole wheat flour (King Arthur’s)
1 1/2 cups of oats
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon of pumpkin spice
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup of butter, room temperature
3/4 cup of light brown sugar
1/2 cup of granulated sugar
1 tablespoon flax seed meal
1 cup of pumpkin puree
2 teaspoons of vanilla
1 cup of chocolate chips (optional)
1 bag of Hershey Pumpkin Pie Spice Kisses
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line your cookie sheets with parchment or a baking mat. In a large mixing bowl combine the flours, oats, soda, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice and salt in a bowl. In your stand mixer, paddle attached, blend butter and sugars. Once fluffy, add the flax, pumpkin, egg and vanilla. Beat well. Then add the flour mixture to the stand mixer and blend. By hand add the chocolate chips, if using. Drop with a scoop onto your cookie sheet and bake for 13-15 minutes.
While baking, remove the wrappers from the Kisses. Once you remove the cookies from the oven, gently put the Kiss on top and push (lightly) down. Let cool. Serve.
