Chai Pumpkin Kiss Cookies

*Note: you have less than 2 days to enter the giveaway for a free blog design from VintPrint Design!!*

Zachary and I are going out of town for a week, so while we are gone, we were able to talk some lovely bloggers into sharing their favorite recipes with you! They all look divine and I want to make each one of them right now. First up is Autumn from The Art of Beauty with these chai pumpkin kiss cookies. Mmm! Take it away Autumn!

It is getting to be the time of year when we crave the fall spices and warm goodness of our favorite baked goods. This is one of my favorite cookies that many people have done and redone. Here's my take on this delicious fall time favorite.


Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup chai concentrate (I used Oregon Chai Original)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. cream of tarter
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 Tbs. Chai spice mix
  • 1 tsp. Chai spice mix/ 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1 bag Pumpkin spice Hershey’s Kisses

Chai Spice Mix:

  • 1-1/2 tsp. ground cardamom
  • 1-1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg

Preparation:

Cream together butter and sugar in a large bowl until smooth.  Add egg, chai concentrate and vanilla. In separate bowl mix together flour, baking soda, cream of tarter, salt and 1 Tbs. chai spice mix. 

Combine wet and dry ingredients, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour to let dough chill enough to work with.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Using your hands, roll dough into 1 inch round balls and place on parchment paper. Lightly sprinkle dough with Chai Spice/Sugar mixture before baking.

Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes. Remove cookies and place one pumpkin kiss in the center of each cookie. Don’t touch cookies until completely cooled or kisses will puddle.  Enjoy!

  9. I have never heard of chai. I may have to give it a try. My weekly linky party--One Creative Weekend--has gone spooky this week in honor of my thirteenth party. If you haven’t already, I hope you’ll visit "One Creative Weekend" on OneCreativeMommy.com (open every Fri-Wed) and link up this idea and anything else you’d like to share. (You can include non-Halloween posts as well, but feel free to link up as many Halloween-themed posts as you like.) There are two categories—one for Halloween and one for everything else.
