Pumpkin Spice Cookies
Yay! It’s pumpkin spice season! It’s one of the best things about having to say goodbye to the warm days of summer. These Pumpkin Spice Cookies are the perfect way to get your fix!
Wouldn’t they make a nice after school treat?
Can you believe the Pumpkin Spice Latte at Starbuck released early this year on August 28th? They didn’t even wait until September. This tells me that everyone is more eager than ever to get their hands on everything pumpkin spice, so let’s get to the recipe!

Ok, now on to the super delish recipe!
Pumpkin Spice Cookies with White Chocolate Chips
So, the twist with this recipe is the addition of white chocolate to the cookies. Now you have pumpkin and chocolate, so there’s no turning back! Pure delight in every bite!
First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Now, line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or use a Silpat baking mat (my fav) and set aside.
In a medium bowl, combine your dry ingredients – the flour through salt.
Next, in a stand mixer or large mixing bowl and hand held mixer, beat butter until fluffy for about 30 seconds. Now, add granulated and brown sugar and beat until combined. Don’t forget to scrape down the edges to get a good mix! Add eggs one at a time and beat well after each addition. Beat in pumpkin puree and vanilla.
Finally, beat in flour mixture and white chocolate chips. Your batter is ready!
Place approximately 2 tablespoons of dough on prepared pan (I like to use a cookie scoop) about 2 inches apart. Now, bake for 10 – 12 minutes or until edges are golden brown.
Your kitchen will smell ahhhmazing – like baking heaven – and you’ll want to bite into these warm goodies as soon as they come out of the oven!
Cool on the baking pan for about 2 minutes, and then transfer cookies to a wire cooling rack.

Tips for Baking Pumpkin Spice Cookies
- Make sure to use pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie filling in your cookies.
- One of the best ways for your cookies turn out perfect every time, with golden brown edges and soft middles, is a Silpat Baking Mat. I won’t bake cookies on anything else.
- To store, layer your cookies between waxed paper and place in an airtight container. They last about 3 days at room temperature or freeze for about 3 months.
