Pumpkin Spice Sugar Cookies

The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap 2014

This is my second year to participate in The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap. This year I received some really tasty cookies! I cannot wait to gather the recipes for the cookies I got.

The cookies I sent were sort of an experiment. Last year I had played around with making some pumpkin whoopie pie type of cookies, but never quite got it perfect. So thus year, I decided to take that same idea, but make them into roll out cookies. It was, according to the three ladies who received my cookie tins, very successful!

1 pkg Sugar Cookie Mix (such as Betty Crocker)
1 stick unsalted butter, softened
1 egg
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
1 tsp pumpkin spice
1/4 cup All Purpose Flour + more for rolling

Combine cookie mix, butter, and egg as directed on the back of the bag. Add the flour, pumpkin puree and pumpkin spice and mix until just combined.
Chill in the fridge for about 20 minutes. Preheat the oven to 350*.

Once dough is chilled, roll out on a floured surface. Cut with cookie cutter of your choice an place on parchment lined baking sheet. Sprinkle the tops with sugar before baking.
Bake 7-9 minutes and allow to cool for 2 minutes on the baking sheet before moving to a cooling rack.
