Ingredients

Coating

  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon pumpkin pie spice

Cookies

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ cup pumpkin purée
  • 1 cup white chocolate pieces

Instructions

Coating

  • In a small bowl, stir together sugar and pumpkin spice. Set aside.

Cookies

  • Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Line sheet pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Whisk together flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • With an electric mixer, beat butter and sugars until well combined, 1-2 minutes.
  • Beat in egg.
  • Add pumpkin and continue to mix.
  • Stir in flour mixture.
  • Add white chocolate, stirring only to combine.
  • Use a cookie scoop or spoon to portion dough.
  • Roll each piece of dough into a ball and coat in spiced sugar.
  • Place on prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake for 13-15 minutes, until done.

Notes

  • Make sure you have pumpkin puree and NOT pumpkin pie filling.
  • The butter and sugar mixture will break when you add egg and pumpkin. Don't panic!
  • Get the butter and eggs out of the fridge a few hours prior to baking.
  • If you don’t have a cookie scoop, you can use a normal spoon to spoon out the cookie dough. Just try and get them as close as you can in size!
  • This cookie dough is very sticky! You will have to keep your hands clean while scooping.
  • If you aren't a fan of white chocolate, you can actually use any kind of chocolate you prefer! We love dark chocolate in the cookies, as well.
  • To see if the cookies are done, you can poke them with a cake tester or tooth pick. If it comes out clean, the cookies are done!
  • The cookies will puff up and then drop slightly as they cool.
