  • Electric Mixer


  • 1 cup butter (unsalted and softened)
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 2.25 cup all-purpose flour


  • Set oven to 325 degrees.
  • Using an electric mixer fitted with a paddle, cream butter for 30 seconds.
  • Add brown sugar and mix until well combined.
  • Beat in milk, vanilla and pumpkin pie spice until well incorporated.
  • Slowly beat in the flour and continue mixing at a low - med speed until dough comes together and starts to form a ball.
  • Remove from mixer, form dough into a large disc shape, cover with waxed paper and refrigerate for about an hour.
  • Remove from refrigerator and roll dough between two pieces of waxed paper until 1/4" thick. Using cookie cutter shape of your choice, cut out the shape and place it on an un-greased baking sheeting.
  • Repeat this process until all dough is used and shaped.
  • Bake cookies for about 12 minutes until edges just start to turn golden.
  • Remove from oven and allow the cookies to cool 3-5 minutes before transferring to a rack to completely cool.
