Are you bored with plain cookies? Check out those spices in your kitchen cabinet and spice up your cookies with this simple pumpkin spice cookie recipe!
- Have all the ingredients at room temperature. Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) 10 to 15 minutes before baking the cookies.
- Prepare two baking sheets, make sure that the baking sheets fits properly into the oven. Lightly coat it with oil using a pastry brush.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients: flour, oats, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin pie spice, ginger and salt. Stir all the ingredients until just incorporated.
- In a separate mixing bowl, whisk the softened butter and brown sugar until creamy. Use an electric mixer if you like your cookies light and crunchy.
- If you want thicker cookies whisk them manually. Add-in the egg and whisk it until it blends into the mixture. Add the vanilla, pumpkin and apple butter.
- Add the flour into the mixture while continuously whisking. Whisk it until all the ingredients are just incorporated. Do not over mix the batter. Fold in the walnuts into the butter until evenly combined.
- Drop the cookie dough into the baking sheets using a spoon. But, if you want your cookies to have equal sizes use an ice cream scoop. Don’t be shy using heaping scoops and make then extra thick.
- Provide a two inch allowance between the cookies and the edges of the baking tray. If your cookies are too elastic and spread in your baking tray, refrigerate them first before baking.
- Place the baking trays into the middle-lower rack of the preheated oven, and bake for about 12 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. After 12 minutes, carefully take the cookies out from the oven and wait for 1 minute before transferring the cookies into a wire rack to cool completely.
You can add a brown sugar frosting and top it with some toasted pecans or additional walnuts. But if you hate waiting, you can dive straight in pair it with your own favorite beverage!
Pumpkin spice can be bought in the grocery store or if you’re too tired to get out of the house, you can your own!

To make your own pumpkin spice, all you need is a tablespoon of ground cinnamon, 2 teaspoons of ginger, half teaspoon of cloves, allspice, grated nutmeg and a big pinch of cardamom. Blend it all together and dissolve any lumps.
Store in a spice jar and that’s it!
Tips: To soften your butter, cut them into small cubes and transfer them into a bowl. Boil water into the pan and put the bowl on top of it. The heat from the warm water will help to quickly soften your butter.
