Chocolate Peanut Butter Blossoms with Pumpkin Spice Kisses

Don’t you just love all the seasonal goodies that appear in the grocery store in the fall?

More specifically, don’t you love all the pumpkin goodies that appear in the grocery store?! I’m sorry that my second dessert post is another pumpkin one. Well… I’m not sorry. But I am sorry if you’re not a pumpkin fan. Get this though, you don’t have to use pumpkin spice Hershey Kisses– you can use any kind of Hershey Kiss! But I think the pumpkin spice ones are awesome.

Glazed Pumpkin Cookies

Fall is officially here!
Personally, I broke out the pumpkin weeks ago. I knew it was still summer, but that didn’t stop me. Everybody else was breaking out the pumpkin already, so I did, too! Don’t judge.

This time, though, I’m getting more extreme with my pumpkin obsession. Before this, I had NEVER made my own pumpkin puree. Never! Can you believe it? I feel like a fraud, calling myself a pumpkin lover for all these years without having ever made homemade pumpkin puree.

And you know what? It’s not even difficult. Or time consuming. Or expensive. So why had I never done it before? You’ve got me.
