The second pumpple-inspired recipe I want to share with you this week is The Pumpple Cookie! Be sure to read about my Pumpple experience and Cake Ball recipe from earlier in the week.
This cookie allows you to get pumpkin, apple, vanilla, and chocolate flavors all in one bite!
I used Betty Crocker’s Thumbprint Cookie recipe to make the cookie and embellished from there.
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup shortening
- 1/4 cup butter, softened
- 1/2 t. vanilla
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 cup flour
- 1/4 t. salt
- 1/2 cup apple jelly
- ground cinnamon
- Pumpkin Spice Hershey’s Kisses, one per cookie
- Chocolate candy disks or chips, melted
Preheat the oven to 350F. Beat together the brown sugar, shortening, butter, vanilla, and egg yolk. Add the flour and salt. Form 1″ balls and place 1″ apart on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Use your thumb or the end of a wooden spoon to indent the center of the cookie.
Bake 10 minutes. Meanwhile, measure out the apple jelly into a cup and stir in cinnamon, to taste. When the cookies have become slightly browned, remove them from the oven and push the cookies’ centers back in to make a well immediately. Fill each well with the apple jelly. then push a Pumpkin Spice Hershey’s Kiss into the cookie, right on top of the jelly. Transfer to a cooling rack. Melt chocolate, then spoon it into a storage bag. Make a small cut in the corner and drizzle over the cookies.
I also did a few oval-shaped cookies to separate the flavors a little.
