Pumpkin Spice Cookies

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/3 cups light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup apple butter
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease 2 baking sheets.
  2. Stir the flour, oats, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin pie spice, ginger, and salt in a bowl.
  3. Beat the butter and brown sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Add 1 egg and allow it to blend into the mixture before adding the other along with the vanilla. Add the pumpkin and apple butter; continue beating. Mix in the flour mixture until just incorporated. Fold in the walnuts, mixing just enough to evenly combine. Drop spoonfuls of the dough 2 inches apart onto the prepared baking sheets.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the edges are golden, about 12 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 1 minute before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
