Pumpkin Pie Spice Cookie Recipe
When you think of fall you probably think of pumpkins and pumpkin pie. I myself am not a huge fan of pumpkin pie, but everyone else in my family loves it. So when my sister invited us to her home for a family dinner, I challenged myself to make a pumpkin pie spice cookie recipe to bring for dessert.
This recipe is similar to my twisted chocolate chip cookie recipe with slightly varying amounts, and no chocolate. Of course, there is the main ingredient, pumpkin pie spice.
I used a pumpkin spice jar mix from the grocery store, but you can make your own by combining cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, clove, and allspice.
Typically cinnamon is the strongest flavor but you can play with them to get the combination that suits your taste. Also, there are many pumpkin spice recipes on the web that will give you an exact recipe to follow.
Tip: Some people have since told me that they would prefer more spice flavor so I suggested increasing the pumpkin pie spices to one tablespoon.
The result is a very thin, crunchy and chewy cookie, that would be great to dunk in your coffee or even a cold glass of milk.
The great thing about them being so thin is that this recipe makes around 5-6 dozen cookies. That's a lot of cookies.
Do you know, not a single cookie was left at the end of the night. I hope you like them too.
P.S. One of my most popular cookie recipes is this Fresh Cranberry Shortbread Cookie. You can find them and many more on my Recipes Page.

Hi Patti, I've looked up and down this post and no recipe is showing up! Is it because I'm on my phone?
No Karen, it's not you. I was updating the post this morning and accidentally deleted the recipe. You should be able to read it now. Thanks for leaving a comment to let me know.
YUMM!!! Those look so tasty, and perfect for ushering in the fall season. I know they'll be a hit at my house... I can't wait to try the recipe... 🙂
The one thing I don't bake is pies! I love the idea of this cookie. Tastes like fall but isn't a pie! Will definitely be making these for my family! Also love that it makes a big batch so I can share some.
They turned out pretty good. I loved challenging myself to create new combinations. While they don't always turn out it's fun to stretch my creativity.
