Chai Pumpkin Spice Cookies

Teresa Jacobson


Adapted this recipe from but the photo is mine. I wasn't sure these were going to turn out well. The raw dough didn't have much flavor. However, the finished product is wonderful! The Pumpkin Spice Kiss really rounds out the flavor beautifully. The Pumpkin Spice Kisses are usually out around Halloween. I stocked up!
