What if I don’t have any pumpkin pie spice mix?

Don’t fret, the recipe can still be made. If you find out that you don’t have any of the pumpkin pie spice mixes in your cabinet, you can swap it out for some extra cinnamon instead. The pumpkin flavor might be a bit less in the end but you can rest easy knowing that they’re still going to taste absolutely delicious.

Pumpkin pie spice mix consists of  ground cinnamon, ground ginger, ground nutmeg, ground allspice, and ground cloves. So you can add a little of of if you have them but if you don’t have pumpkin pie spice I would just use cinnamon and you will love them just the same!!

  • In the mixing bowl of a stand mixer, (or a large bowl if using a hand mixer) place the butter, pumpkin, sugar, eggs, vanilla, and milk, and blend until smooth and creamy.

  • Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper, and drop the cookies by the tablespoonful onto the parchment paper about 2 inches apart.

How do I know when the cookies are done baking?

For these cookies, you need to go by how they look. When they start to turn golden-brown in the oven, it’s time to pull them and let them harden and cool on the counter.

I like to add a dash of sugar and cinnamon on top of them as well before I stick them in the oven so that it gives them just a little dash of sweetness with every single bite.

 Now that you know how simple these pumpkin cookies are, it’s time to get baking! There’s nothing better than eating a warm, homemade pumpkin spice cookie and washing it down with a nice, cold glass of milk!
