Pumpkin Spice Cookie Blossoms

Today I am sharing another recipe from a cookie swap.  This swap is hosted by Julie from White Lights on Wednesday 

In this swap I was paired up with another blogger, Wendy from A day in the life on the Farm  We each chose one of our favorite cookie recipes from our blogs and swapped recipes.  I sent Wendy my White Chocolate Coconut Toffee Cookies   You can click on the name of Wendy's blog up above and it will take you to her version of my cookies.

The cookie Wendy picked for me is a Pumpkin Spice Blossom that she created.  It sure is delicious!  I was not able to find the Pumpkin Swirl Kisses so I went on Amazon and ordered them, however after tasting this babies they would be just fine with out the kiss.  The cookies take like pumpkin bread rolled in cinnamon sugar.  I think they would even be good to just top with a pecan half after taking them out of the oven!

**A very special Thank You to my daughter Cally for baking these cookies for me.  I have been under the weather and really behind this last week   xoxoxo

Pumpkin Spice Cookie Blossoms
recipe fromWendy at A day in the life on the Farm

2 1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

44 Pumpkin Spice Kisses

Place all ingredients, except kisses, in the large bowl of a stand mixer affixed with the paddle attachment.  Beat on low speed until combined.  Beat on med. speed until well blended.

Using a small cookie scoop or a rounded teaspoon, measure out the dough and roll into a ball.  Roll the ball in cinnamon sugar (I used 1 c. sugar to 1 t. cinnamon) and place on a parchment lined baking sheet.

Bake in a preheated oven at 375* for 10 minutes.  Remove from oven and top immediately with a kiss.  Allow to cool and kiss to firm before removing to serving platter.
