  • Beat pumpkin, butter, white sugar, and brown sugar together using an electric mixer in a mixing bowl until creamy. Beat in eggs.

  • Sift flour, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cloves together in a separate bowl. Stir into pumpkin batter. Refrigerate dough for 1 hour.

  • Roll dough into 1-inch balls and place on ungreased baking sheets. Flatten each ball using a fork, making a crisscross pattern.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cookies are golden and edges are set, about 10 minutes, making sure not to overbake.

Cook's Note:

Adjust spices to taste. You may use 4 tablespoons pumpkin pie spice in place of the cinnamon mixture.

Though these were tasty, the dough was extremely hard to roll into balls or even to scoop out. I placed the dough in the freezer for 4 hours (checking every hour) and it was still almost impossible to handle the dough without it sticking to my hands or the cookie scoop. After srtuggling for quite sometime, I was able to make 12 balls. I sprayed a fork to be able to do the criss-cross pattern, and struggled with that also. I wound up baking the rest of the dough as a loaf. This should be bread not cookies and there is no similarity to PB Cookies. Unfortunately, I will not make these again. Read More
