Pumpkin Spice Cookies
Every year my for my daughters back to school night, the bakers get called in and we design baskets of fresh baked deliciousness for the new families and present them to them.
The families are so excited and it is fun making things to welcome them to our school. This year I decided to make these Cinnamon Pumpkin Spice Cookies since they were easy and had all the flavors of fall in them.
We needed three dozen for the baskets and I made a few extra for our family. You can choose to add whatever flavor of kiss you like. I love the color of these but you choose your favorite.
Drop cookies are some of my favorite to make because they are super simple and they come out the same size when you use a cookie scooper.
Depending on the size of the scoop this batch makes between 36 and 48 cookies. I bought both Pumpkin Spice and Milk Chocolate Kisses and made some of each.
