Pumpkin Spice Cookies

Updated on September 30, 2008

My grandma loves making cookies for every occasion and season. Christmas has its own cookie recipes, and so does Easter. These pumpkin spice cookies are crunchy, and a great mix with the chewy zucchini cookies for a Halloween or Thanksgiving dessert tray. I sometimes give these out to friends and coworkers, packaged in cellophane and tied with orange and black ribbon.

Note: There is no pumpkin in these cookies. The taste is from using pumpkin spices.


1/2 cup shortening

1 cup white sugar

1 egg, well beaten

1 1/2 cups sifted flour

1/2 teaspoon soda

1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spices


Work shortening & sugar until fluffy. Add beaten egg. Sift flour & soda together & add spices. Roll in balls, and flatten with glass dipped in sugar. Bake about 10 minutes in 375° F oven.
