How to make Pumpkin Spice Cookies

Step 1: Combine the flour with cornstarch, cream of tartar, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ground cloves until well mixed.

Step 2: Beat the butter and sugars in another large bowl until fluffy. Adjust the mixer to low speed, then beat in the egg, followed by the vanilla and pumpkin.

Step 3: Gradually add the flour mixture until the dough is very sticky.

Step 4: Using clingfilm, tent the bowl and place it in the fridge for at least 2 hours up to 2 days. Remove the dough from the fridge once ready to bake.

Step 5: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees F. Using parchment paper or silicone baking mats, line two cookie trays.

Step 6: Place the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Mix well to make the cinnamon sugar coating.

Step 7: Into about 1.5 tbsp in size balls, shape the dough. Coat each ball in the cinnamon sugar coating, then slightly flatten the balls.

Step 8: On the prepared cookie sheets, place the cookies about 2 inches apart. Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 8 to 10 minutes or until the tops of the cookies look just set.
