Pumpkin sandwich cookies made with chocolate chip ice cream and Hershey's kisses makes everything sweeter

Ice cream sandwiches are a year-round treat in my house and these pumpkin spice chocolate chip cookies are fast becoming a holiday classic.

The cookies have a lightly spiced flavor and the pumpkin keeps them moist even when frozen. You can choose any type of ice cream, and then dress it up by adding Hershey's semi-sweet chocolate chips or Reese's peanut butter chips.

  3. Mix the flour into the other ingredients until just combined.
  4. Fold in the Hershey's semi-sweet chocolate chips or chopped Hershey's snack size bars.
  5. Wrap the cookie dough and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before baking.
