i heart ... pumpkin spice kisses

look what i found at target!
i love pumpkin anything
so i was so excited to see these
pumpkin spice kisses!

they're super good!
and i'm so happy because
on the bag is a recipe for
pumpkin spice swirl cheesecake pie
which i haven't tried yet,
but if it tastes anything like the kisses
(which of course it will - hello!)
it's gonna be soooooo good!

here's the recipe:

2 packages (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 graham cracker crust (8 oz.)
40 pumpkin spice kisses
1 tablespoon milk
whipped cream

1) preheat oven to 350 degrees.
beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla
in large bowl until smooth.
add eggs one at a time,
beating well after each addition.
set aside 1/4 cup batter;
spread remaining batter in crust.

2) remove kisses from wrappers.
microwave 30 kisses
on medium heat (50%)
for one minute; stir.
if necessary,
microwave 10 more seconds,
then stir,
repeating this until they are
melted and smooth.
gradually blend reserved
cheesecake batter
into melted kisses.
drop kisses mixture
by heaping teaspoonfuls
onto vanilla batter.
gently stir with knife
for marbled effect.

3) bake 30 to 35 minutes
or until center is almost set.
cool completely on wire rack.
cover; refrigerate until chilled.
garnish with whipped cream
and remaining kisses.
