Pumpkin Spice Cookies

In case you didn’t get enough pumpkin during my Week of Pumpkin, here’s another recipe for you. These cookies are similar to Hubby’s all time favorite cookies, but they have a subtle hint of pumpkin flavor. I like that they aren’t super cakey like most pumpkin cookies. They are extremely moist and delicious. Hubby and I really enjoyed them and I think they’d make a great addition to any holiday spread.

Pumpkin Spice Cookies

Yield: ~3 dozen

Ingredients:

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar, plus 1/4 cup for rolling
1/3 cup canned pumpkin puree
1/4 cup molasses
1 egg
2 1/3 cups AP flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp salt

Directions:

Beat the butter in a large bowl. Add 1 cup sugar, pumpkin, molasses, and egg and continue beating until well combined and fluffy.

Sift together remaining ingredients and gradually add to wet ingredients, beating on low speed until thoroughly incorporate. Refrigerate for up to one hour or until batter can be handled (I was impatient so I put the bowl in the freezer for about 25 minutes).

Preheat oven to 350F. Place remaining 1/4 cup sugar in a pie dish. Form the batter into walnut-sized balls. roll in sugar and arrange on cookie sheets, 2 inches apart. Bake for 10 minutes, rotating pans halfway through.

Cool for a few minutes on sheets and then remove to wire racks to continue cooling.

    I have found taking pictures of soup to be more challenging but you make it look easy!

    I agree – soup is hard to photograph. This soup was very thick and chunky. Our bowls are all navy blue so I didn’t want to use that, so I just used my square plate since it was white.

    Inspired by your post, I made this yesterday. The texture was tough for me to deal with (I blended it with a food processor), but Scott liked it. Next time I might try it without the cinnamon (and without blending it), maybe make it a little less sweet. Thanks for sharing!

    Sorry you didn’t like it 🙁 It is sweeter. Have you tried the other butternut squash soup in my blog. That one isn’t so sweet. And its very creamy.
