Hidden Pumpkin Spice Cookies

Make cookie dough as above. Using about 1 tablespoon dough for each cookie, shape dough around one candy piece (candy does not need to be frozen for this variation); roll in hand to make ball. (Be sure to cover each candy piece completely.) Roll in granulated sugar.

Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until cookies are set. Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.

While still slightly warm, roll in powdered sugar. Cool completely.

Roll again in powdered sugar just before serving.
