Everything pumpkin season is here and if you’re gonna put pumpkin on everything, pumpkin spice is the right way to go. And well, if pumpkin spice latte is so amazing already, why not make Pumpkin Spice Cookies?

In this video, I’ll be showing how to make the whole recipe for these delicious Pumpkin Spice Cookies from scratch, including the roasted pumpkin purée. In my opinion it makes it taste much better and it is healthier, so why not? But if you don’t feel like taking the time to make the pumpkin purée from scratch, you’re more than welcomed to use the ready to go canned version you find at grocery stores.

These cookies are soft and chewy and will melt in your mouth. The little addition of cinnamon and sugar on top adds a nice texture to the cookies. All the spices combined add a great warmth to the Pumpkin Spice Cookies and it really makes you have a little taste of Fall.

  • The smaller you cut the pumpkin, the faster it will bake in the oven.
  • Blitz the purée until it is smooth or leave some chunks so you can taste the pumpkin a little more.
  • Do not over mix the dough after adding the flour.
  • The cookies will still be a little soft when you take it out of the oven and it will become harder once it cools down.
