Pumpkin Spice Sugar Cookies
We’re always looking for a fun treat that we can eat ourselves or share with our family and friends. And honestly, it’s nice to have a plate of cookies just sitting around for people to snack on when they come over. They are kind of crispy and and chewy all at the same time! We just LOVE that combination. It’s like the best of both worlds.
Throughout our years of cooking, we’ve managed to bake up hundreds, if not thousands, of delicious homemade cookies…but these Pumpkin Spice Sugar Cookies are some of our favorite ones to make.
Not only do they signal that fall is here but they have a great subtle flavor of pumpkin as well.
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!!
How do you whip up these cookies? So easily!! Just take a look!
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!
