Pumpkin Sugar Cookies

Classic sugar cookies get a fall makeover in this pumpkin sugar cookie recipe! Pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice are used in the cookie dough, then the cookies are cut out and decorated to look like pumpkins.


What you need:

all-purpose flour pumpkin pie spice ground cinnamon baking powder salt butter granulated sugar pumpkin puree egg yolks vanilla extract

Whisk together the flour, spices, baking powder, and salt

In a separate bowl, beat the butter until smooth then mix in the granulated sugarĀ 

Line a plate with paper towels, then spread out the pumpkin puree and blot the top with additional paper towels

Add the blotted pumpkin puree to the butter mixture, beat to incorporate, then mix in the egg yolks and vanilla

Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until just combined. The dough will be very thick

Flour a piece of parchment paper. Roll out half of the cookie dough between two pieces of parchment paper. Repeat with the remaining dough

Chill the rolled-out dough sheets in the fridge for an hour. Cut out pumpkin shapes with a cookie cutter and place them on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet

Bake the cookies until the tops are set, then let them cool completely before decoratingĀ
