Chewy Pumpkin Spice Cookies

Hmm – what shall I have with my cup of coffee this morning?  Do I fancy crunchy biscuits or a nice chewy cookie? The chewy ones won on this occasion: I hadn’t spoken to anyone today, so I felt my ‘jaws’ needed a bit more exercise!

I do love an old-fashioned soft and chewy cookie – after all the word ‘biscuit’ means ‘twice-baked’ in French, so why wait all that time to cook something twice when it tastes just as good cooked in a shorter time!

One of my friends prefers to make and serve these pumpkin spice cookies with a glass of milk after school to help keep her children quieter for longer – so double bonus!

Shape them using a Pumpkin Shaped Cookie Cutter for a party!

The cookies can be kept in an airtight container for several days, as they are supposed to be chewy!

Tip: Add a little mixed fruit or some chopped glace cherries or dried cranberries for a change. Or some white chocolate chips like I did today. Alternatively, for more spice, add ½ tsp of ground ginger.

Yield: 36 cookies
