Video of how I made this recipe is posted on my Instagram @pastry_tales

Let’s start with the recipe.

Yield about 36 regular size cookies . You can cut the ingredients in half if you want a smaller batch


2 ½ cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

½ teaspoon ground nutmeg

½ teaspoon ground cloves

*** Also, if you have pumpkin pie spice, just use 2 teaspoons and do not add cinnamon, nutmeg or cloves ***

½ cup butter, softened

1  cup white granulated sugar. This amount of sugar was enough for me because I’m using the pumpkin spice baking truffles which are sweet. If you don’t use the baking truffles I would recommend adding 1/4-1/2 cup more. You can also use 1/2 cup white granulated sugar and 1/4 cup light brown sugar.

1 cup canned pumpkin puree

1 egg at room temperature

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

1.- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F . Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ground cloves, and salt. Set aside.

2.- In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and white sugar. Add pumpkin, egg, and 1 teaspoon vanilla to butter mixture, and beat until creamy. Mix in dry ingredients. Drop on cookie sheet by tablespoonfuls; flatten slightly.

3.- Bake for 15 to 20 minutes. The edges should be slightly brown.


Important Note: Do not store these cookies in an airtight container because they get mushy and moist (because of the pumpkin puree). They stay pretty good just over the counter.
