Ingredients

  • 1

    cup butter, softened

  • ½

    cup granulated sugar

  • ¾

    teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ½

    teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • ¼

    teaspoon ground ginger

  • cup canned pumpkin

  • 1

    large egg

  • 1

    teaspoon vanilla

  • 2-¾

    cups all-purpose flour

  • ¾

    teaspoon baking powder

  • additional ground nutmeg

Directions

Pre-heat your oven to 400 F. In a large mixing bowl beat the butter until creamy. Beat in the sugar and spices until well combined. Mix in the pumpkin, egg and vanilla until well combined. In a separate bowl, stir together the flour and baking powder. Stir the flour mixture into the butter mixture until well combined. Place the dough into a cookie press and press out shapes onto an ungreased half sheet pan (for best cookie baking results use a half sheet pan, not a non-stick cookie sheet). Lightly sprinkle the cookies with additional nutmeg. Bake 6 to 8 minutes or until set but not browned. Allow the cookies to cool 2 minutes on half sheet pan and then remove them to wire racks to cool completely. If spritz cookies have not been a tradition in your family at Christmas time it will be after you make this pumpkin cookie. It has delicious flavor and the dough has great consistency for the cookie press.
