I assure you these are the best soft and chewy pumpkin cookies out there. A crowd favorite every time.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
In a large bowl, beat the sugar and butter until creamy. Beat in the vanilla, egg, and pumpkin puree until combined. Stir in the rest of the ingredients until a soft cookie dough forms. Using a small ice cream scoop, scoop even amounts of cookie dough onto the baking sheet. Slightly press down with the palm of your hand.
Bake for 15-17 min. until light golden brown. Cool for 5 min. Enjoy!
