I am so excited to have a Co-Host this week at Heavenly Treats Sunday Link Party!  I am so happy to have one of my lovely friends Julie from This Gal Cooks ~ She has a wonderful, yummy recipe for White Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Cookies!  Make sure you go and check out her awesome blog, where she shares all different kinds of recipes!

 I hope you enjoy this delightful recipe. Just a side note, I got the recipe for the cookie batter from the Better Homes and Gardens “New Cook Book” published in 1996. The super creative “white chocolate pumpkin spice” was all my doing!

makes 3 dozen cookies
  • 1/4 C Shortening
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 C white sugar
  • 1/2 C packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 egg, room temp
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/4 C all purpose flour
  • 1/2 C white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 C chopped Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses
    • To get the pumpkin spice kisses chopped into small pieces, refrigerate the kisses over night so they get rock hard. Then, remove them from the fridge right before opening them and placing them into a food processor. Chop them until they are in small pieces.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter and shortening with a mixer on medium high for about 30 seconds. 
  • Add the white sugar, brown sugar and baking soda and mix until combined.
  • Beat in the eggs and vanilla.
  • Gradually beat in the flour and mix until well blended.
  • Fold in the white chocolate chips and the pumpkin spice Hershey kisses pieces.
  • Drop dough into round teaspoons 2 inches apart (tip: I dropped the pieces onto the baking pan and then rolled each one into a ball. This made pretty perfect round cookies)
  • Bake at 375 for 8 minutes (tip: remove the cookies from the oven before they are completely done baking. This will result in chewy cookies. 8 minutes was perfect for this) Allow cookies to cool before serving.
