Pumpkin Sugar Cookies – #FilltheCookieJar

Today, I’m filling the cookie jar with these delicious pumpkin sugar cookies. They take the traditional sugar cookie to a whole new level! The flavor is the perfect hint of pumpkin and fits the requirement for today’s Fill the Cookie Jar theme of fall! Pumpkin is one of my favorite flavors….I’m drinking pumpkin coffee right now and eating one of these cookies. The perfect way to start the day! One other thing I like about these cookies is that they’re super moist and a little chewy. YUM!!

Pumpkin Sugar Cookies | Join Us, Pull up a Chair #FilltheCookieJar
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
14 Tbsp unsalted butter, softened at room temperature
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg yolk
1/2 cup pumpkin puree

In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, salt and pumpkin pie spice until combined. Set aside. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Mix in the egg yolk and vanilla extract. Stir in the pumpkin puree. Using the lowest speed on your mix, slowly add in your dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Place in the bowl in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes for your dough to chill.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside. Roll the dough into one inch balls and then roll into a small bowl of sugar. Place on the prepared baking sheets and press down slightly. Bake for  5 minutes, rotate the pans and bake for an additional 5 minutes. Allow to cool on the pan for 2 minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack to completely cool. Store in an airtight container.
