Thanksgiving is just days away and it’s time to Pumpkin Spice ALL THE THINGS! I have been so busy the last few weeks that I didn’t realize it was almost Thanksgiving. I am so far behind! I just signed up for my dishes for our family’s Thanksgiving dinner and realized thought I’d experiment with a pumpkin spice cookie recipe instead of bringing along the usual cake or pie to Thanksgiving dinner. This Old Fashioned Pumpkin Spice Cookies Recipe is something that I found in my favorite cookie cookbook, “Grandma’s Old Fashioned Favorites.” I try new cookie recipes all the time, but oddly enough, all of my favorites come from this old cookbook that I bought through the ABC Distributing catalog over a decade ago!

An Old Fashioned Pumpkin Spice Cookies Recipe - an old fall favorite that your kids will love!

Serves: 7 dozen
Ingredients
  • 1 cups all-vegetable shortening
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 can (16 oz) Libby's pumpkin puree
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon allspice
  • 2 cups raisins
  • 1 cup chopped nuts (I used Pecans)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine shortening, sugar, pumpkin, eggs and vanilla in a large bowl and beat well. Your batter should be light and fluffy.
  3. Combine the remaining dry ingredients in a large bowl and whisk together to thoroughly combine.
  4. Add to the pumpkin mixture and mix well, then stir in the raisins and nuts.
  5. Drop by rounded tablespoonfulls onto your parchment-lined cookie sheet and cook for 12-13 minutes.

These Pumpkin Spice Cookies are so good! They’re a little spicy, thanks to the nutmeg and allspice, but not too spicy. You can alter the recipe by adding less raisins, less nuts, or even by throwing in some chocolate chips.

Enjoy!

    I love any and everything pumpkin! I have everything but the pumpkin puree or I’d make them right now. Adding pumpkin puree to my grocery list.

    Mmmmm… I love pumpkin anything. If I put chocolate chips in for the raisins even my daughter would gobble these up…but maybe I’ll make them with the raisins so I don’t have to share 😉

    I have been craving spice cookies and now I know what to do about that. I will leave out the raisins otherwise hubby won’t eat them, LOL

      They’ll be fine without the raisins! My daughter hates raisins so the next batch we make, I am using chocolate chips instead of the raisins. :)
