Pumpkin Spice Cookies

On Saturday I took a mini trip along Lake Michigan to check out the fall foliage, the oranges, reds and yellows were absolutely stunning. Along the way there were a variety of adorable towns filled with equally unique shops. At one stop I went into a bakery and enjoyed a chai tea latte and a pumpkin spice cookie. The combination was fall perfection. Since Sunday was a rainy day I decided to come up with my own pumpkin spice cookie, the result is everything I had hoped for (and it tasted almost exactly like the one from the bakery).

Pumpkin Spice Cookies
(the pudding makes the cookies soft)
3/4 cup salted butter; softened
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 small pkg. Pumpkin Spice Instant Pudding Mix
2 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons  vanilla
2-3 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 ¼ cups flour
Optional: chocolate chips

1. Cream butter, brown sugar and sugar together in a large bowl.
2. Add in dry pumpkin spice pudding mix; beat until combined. 
3. Add eggs, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon; mix well.
4. Add baking soda and flour; beat until combined.
5. Stir in chocolate chips if you’d like. (I made some with and without chocolate chips).
6. Drop dough into balls onto cookie sheets. 
7. Bake at 350 for 8-11 minutes. (All of mine took 10 minutes).
