Peanut Butter Pumpkin Spice Kiss Cookies

Hello friends! Chris and I got back from our road trip Wednesday night.  It has been so busy and chaotic that I haven’t been able to post until today.  I’m playing catch-up now so apologies if you haven’t heard from me.  I can’t believe we’re in mid November already! Wasn’t Halloween not too long ago?! I feel like I didn’t get a chance to do as much pumpkin related recipes as I’d like this year.

Peanut Butter Pumpkin Spice Kiss Cookies

Today’s post isn’t really pumpkin per se.  I have leftover candies I needed to use up.  It fits the autumn theme, sort of… and it’s easy.  It’ll have to do.  Have a great week!

Peanut Butter Pumpkin Spice Kiss Cookies

Print this recipe


  • 1/2 dark muscovado sugar
  • 1/4 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 cup of creamy peanut butter
  • 23 pumpkin spice kisses

Peanut Butter Pumpkin Spice Kiss Cookies


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Line a large baking sheet/pan with parchment paper or Silpat.

Using a stand or electric mixer (or mix by hand) combine sugars, flour and salt.  Then add egg, vanilla extract and peanut butter and mix until incorporated.

Using a small cookie scoop (about 2 teaspoons) or use your hand and shape the dough into 1 inch balls.  Place each ball on the cookie sheet.  If the dough is too sticky, refrigerate for 1/2 hour or until it’s easy to handle.

Bake for 10 minutes.  Remove cookies from the oven and let it cool for 5-8 minutes.  Press a pumpkin spice kiss into the center of each warm cookie then transfer to a cooling rack.

  1. Welcome back Anne! Boy, that recipe title is quite the mouthful, lol…Of course the recipe is a wonderful mouthful too. I do believe I still have some leftover kisses. This may just be the perfect nibbler for the kids that are coming for Thanksgiving.

    Thanks for sharing, Anne…

  2. These cookies look so pretty and adorable with the kisses! Pinning 🙂 I love peanut butter and pumpkin together – sounds incredible and perfect for fall 🙂 Welcome back Anne and hope you had a great time on your road trip and have a great week 🙂

  3. It’s really crazy that November is already half over…where has the year gone?! These cookies sound amazing. My mother-in-law makes those pb kiss cookies with regular chocolate kisses at christmas, but I LOVE this twist. I need to find those pumpkin spice kisses!!!

  4. These are a great way to use up leftover candy! Plus, I can never ever say no to a peanut butter cookie : ) Like ever. haha I always hate the catch-up part after taking a trip – no fun!

  5. I’d love to sink my teeth into a few of them! Love the peanut butter and pumpkin combo! Plus the fact they’re totally adorable too. Hope your week is going great!

  6. I forgot to tell you that this post really makes me wish I was in the US and can get baking ingredients like these pumpkin kisses. These, and butterscotch chips, look like so much fun! Great recipe, I’ll give it a go with a substitute for pumpkin kisses.

  7. Anne, I hope you enjoyed your road trip! I am very happy that you decided to make these when you got back! 🙂 These kiss-in-the-cookies are so perfectly Fall- they would be so pretty on a Thanksgiving buffet! And, as always, your photography is stunning.

    Love, Joy

  8. I am starting a campaign to eat pumpkin year round. The canned puree is available year round so why can’t we enjoy it periodically throughout the year instead of overdosing in October and November? Of course, lovely little morsels like these cookies can only be made when Hershey’s offers seasonally flavored Kisses. Hoarding and stockpiling Kisses may be called for. 🙂
