Pumpkin Spice-Filled Molasses Cookie Cups
Recipe type: Dessert
  • ¾ C butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 C sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ C molasses
  • 2 C flour
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. ground cloves
  • ½ tsp. ground ginger
  • sugar, for rolling
  • 1 bag Pumpkin Spice Hershey's Kisses
  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, mix butter, sugar, and egg until smooth.
  2. Stir in molasses.
  3. In a separate small bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, cloves, and ginger.
  4. Slowly add flour mixture to the wet mixture; blend until combined.
  5. Cover and chill dough 1 hour.
  6. Preheat oven to 375.
  7. Spray a mini muffin tin with baking spray; set aside.
  8. Shape mixture into walnut-size balls, and roll them in the sugar.
  9. Press each ball into a muffin tin well, making an impression in each one with your thumb or the back of a small melon baller, creating a little "bowl".
  10. Bake 8-10 minutes, until golden and set.
  11. While cookies bake, unwrap Hershey's Kisses.
  12. Remove cookies from the oven and immediately fill each cookie cup with a Pumpkin Spice Hershey's Kiss (these will melt almost immediately - that's exactly what want). Once each cookie cup is filled, go back and place a second Kiss on top of each cookie cup.
  13. Let cool fully before serving. Store in an air-tight container.
