Pumpkin Spice Cut-Out Sugar Cookies


Now I’ve made a pumpkin spice sugar cookie before, but they were drop cookies and didn’t hold their shape.  These hold their shape and the taste is divine.  It wasn’t rocket science either.  I just took my basic sugar cookie recipe and added a teaspoon and half of pumpkie pie spice instead of vanilla and voila, the perfect balance of sugar and spice!

So as you can see I didn’t reach much on this but when a recipe is right in your face you just have to go for it!


Pumpkin Spice Sugar Cookies:

  • 1 1/2 cups butter, softened
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin spice blend
  • 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  1. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs and spice. Stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt. Cover, and chill dough for until cool!
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Roll out dough on floured surface 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Cut into shapes with any cookie cutter. Place cookies 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
  3. Bake 6 to 8 minutes in preheated oven. Cool completely.

I can’t begin to tell you how yummy these are and I didn’t even ice them.  Divine they would be!  I mean you know I can decorate a cookie and more will come in the next couple weeks but I thought just a plain and simple recipe would satiate you all for now :)  These would be perfect with a cup of tea, an after dinner snack or a little something special in your loved ones lunch bag!


I hope you enjoy them, it took every fiber of my being to not eat the 12 I made the first go around.

Thanks for looking!


  1. Great recipe Karen. Yes, they would be wonderful iced but left *naked* allows the full flavour of the pumpkin spice to shine ;)

  2. That's a great idea! Love it, and I'll have to steal it... ;)

  3. These sound super yummy. I have so many recipes that I want to try. This one is getting added to my list. I hope I can make them soon. Maybe when I go home for Thanksgiving. These would be perfect :)

  4. do they taste good with vanilla royal icing?
