September is in full swing and that means it is Pumpkin Spice Season…right? To celebrate everything pumpkin, I had to make these Pumpkin Sugar Cookies. They are my new favorite sugar cookie!!
Not too much Pumpkin
Ok I know that sometimes pumpkin spice can over power everything and become too much, but not in these cookies. There is just enough hint of spice, without being in your face pumpkin pie spice.
If you wanted more spice you could add in an additional 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon to make them more like a pumpkin snickerdoodle.
Grab a glass
This cookie batter does not spread so it is important to press the balls of dough down either with a glass or your hand, this will help ensure they bake evenly. By pressing them out you will also get a bit of a crunchy edge and a soft center making these cookies a perfect sugar cookie.
Yes, I sprinkled extra sugar on top after I rolled them out…they are sugar cookies.
They are SUGAR Cookies
One of my favorite things about a sugar cookie is the crunchy sugar on top. I always keep turbinado sugar (or course sugar) on hand to roll my sugar cookies in. I love how the crystals look when they bake and the little added crunch they add.
If you do not have any course sugar, no worries, regular granulated sugar works just fine.
Just a hint of color
The pumpkin puree adds just a hint of color to the dough. I love the color as they are just a hint of orange, like the the beautiful light orange leaves on the trees.
If you wanted more an orange cookie you could add in some food color if you wanted.
