Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • 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.
