How To Make Spiced Sugar Cookies

We still have a great time decorating the cookies,  Spencer even made an Incredible Hulk ghost.

Here is what you need to make these ghoulish cookies:

2 3/4 cups of all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup butter (softened)

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

1 teaspoon Vanilla extract

1 large egg

1. In a bowl add flour and baking soda, stir gently and set aside.

2. In a mixing bowl, blend butter and powdered sugar together (I use a hand mixer).

3. Add in pumpkin pie spice, vanilla and egg, mix until combine.

4. Slowly add flour and baking soda mixture to mixing bowl, blend well.

5. Cover dough and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

6. Roll dough out on a lightly floured surface, cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters.

7. Bake at 350 degrees on ungreased cookie sheet for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.

Cool completely before decorating.

    Great recipe and I love how you decorated your cookies. They are so festive and cute.

  4. I haven’t had a spiced sugar cookie in YEARS!! Spice cookies are so perfect for the fall… well, for anytime, but especially in the fall.

  5. Cookies the kids can decorate are my favorite and I like that these are spiced.

  6. That looks like a great recipe, thank you! I LOVE decorating cookies! 🙂

  7. These are so cute and look fairly easy too. I’d have to find an egg substitute for the kiddo, but he’d really enjoy Halloween-y decorated cookies 🙂

  8. Oh how cute my kids would have a blast making these adorable treats!

  9. Those cookies look so tasty! You did an awesome job decorating them.

  10. My grandma used to make these, but I’m not good at baking. Might have to give these a try.

    I bake cookies all the time why I never thought of using my pumpkin pie spice. I always have lots left over too.
