Autumn is coming and the pumpkin season has started. Now it’s time to redecorate and fill your house with delicous smells of cookies and tea. I loooove Pumpkinspice and everything nice, so here is my favorit Pumpkinspice cookie recipe.
What is pumpkin Spice made of?
PMS is made of different spices: cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger. I favor having all the spices at home so I can mix them together myself but there are also different pumpkinspice mixtures available.
What you need for soft pumpkin spice cookies
- 60g Butter
- 80ml Sunflower oil
- 60g brown sugar
- 60g Xylit
- 20ml caramell Sirup (I used sugar free monin)
- 2 small eggs (or 1 big one)
- 180g pumpkin puree
- 1tsp bakingpowder
- 300g flour
- 1tsp allspice powder
- 1 tsp nutmeg
- 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Lets start with the pumpkin puree
Take half a pumpkin ( I used a Hokkaido but butternut would most likely work too) and core it. Then cut it into small pieces, lay it onto a plate and cover it with plastic wrap. Poke a lot of small holes into the plastic wrap (I useda toothpic) and put the plate into the microwave for 7 Minutes with 900 Watt. After that just puree it. This is by far the fastes way to do it but If you don’t want plastic to be in touch with your food, you can put it in a pot and cook it like regular puree.
- Preheat the oven to 180 °C.
- Take a bowl and add all ingrediens together. If you feel like the dough is to soft you can add a bit more flour, If it’s to dry add a little bit more oil until its a normal cookie consistency.
- Now you take two spoons and take off dough to create your cookies. You can put them pretty close together. I could fit 16 cookies besides each other without a problem.
- Bake the cookies for 15-20 minutes.
They can be eaten directly. I love them when they are still warm from the oven. If you still feel like you don’t have enough pumpkin spice in your life you can pair the cookies with a Homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte. And the only think you will need additionally is maple syrup, coffe and milk.
