Pumpkin Spice Sugar Cookies




I've never been a huge fan of Pumpkin until the last year or two. I've really been missing out! These cookies are amazing and go great with a hot cup of coffee! I think they would be even better frosted but since I'm trying to keep the calories down I did not frost mine. Either way, they are great!


Pumpkin Spice Sugar Cookies
Makes about 2 dozen cookies

Ingredients
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon light brown sugar
1 large egg
1½ teaspoons vanilla extract

In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside.

With a hand or stand mixer, cream the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar at medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula as needed. Add the egg and vanilla; beat at medium speed until combined, about 30 seconds. Add the dry ingredients and beat at low speed until just combined, about 30 seconds.

Roll dough into balls and flatten with the bottom of your hand or a glass.

Bake in a pre-heated 375 degree oven for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned and set. Frost if desired. Enjoy!
