(WSVN) - Thanksgiving is around the corner, and that means fall flavors are in the kitchen. We are talking about pumpkin spice cookies. That’s what’s on the menu as we grab a Bite with Belkys.

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
¼ teaspoon ground ginger
¼ teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
¾ cup granulated sugar
¾ cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup 100% pure pumpkin
1 large egg, at room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
cream cheese frosting (store-bought or homemade)

Method of Preparation:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or Silpat baking mats. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, and salt. Set aside.
  • Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, beat the butter and sugars together until creamy and smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl with a spatula, as necessary.
  • Add the pumpkin, egg and vanilla and beat until smooth.
  • Add the dry ingredients and mix on low until just combined. Don’t over-mix.
  • Use a cookie scoop or spoon to drop the cookie dough by rounded tablespoon onto the prepared baking sheets.
  • Bake for 14 to 18 minutes or until edges are firm but cookies are still soft in the center.
  • Cool on baking sheets for 2 to 5 minutes; transfer to wire cooling racks to cool completely.
  • Frost the cooled cookies with cream cheese frosting and enjoy!
