My pumpkin spice cookies are full of the warming flavours and spices of autumn. Delicious!
As you all know by now, I love autumn! And what could be more autumnal than pumpkins and pumpkin spice? Of course, I had to put these beautiful flavours with my all time favourite bake: cookies!
And so my pumpkin spice cookies were born! 😊
Since I was using pumpkin puree in these cookies, I found I could remove the need for eggs in this recipe. This means these could easily be adapted to be a vegan recipe too! Just substitute the butter for a vegan alternative, as I did in my vegan biscoff brownies. Yum!
Here in the UK, I’ve not found a ready made pumpkin spice mix. Unsurprising really, since Thanksgiving and pumpkin pie is so entwined in North American culture!
But fear not, I made my own, using a few staple spices, and hey presto! My pumpkin spice cookies have all the warmth and homeliness of beautiful autumnal spices, such a perfect way to enjoy fall!
Of course, if you have your own mix, do use it instead of my spices. Just substitute 2-3 tsp (depending on how strong you want the flavours!) of your spice mix for all my spices. Simples!
As an added bonus, these cookies don’t require any chilling time. Meaning they can be prepped and baked within a half hour! Perfect if, like me, you have ravenous children returning from school each afternoon! 😆
Trust me, friends, you’re gonna want to bake these. My home now smells welcoming and cosy, which is especially lovely given how wet and windy it’s been here recently!

Happy baking friends. Until next time!
