Pumpkin spice cookies

    25 min

    The nights are drawing in, the leaves are turning a beautiful hue of reds and oranges, and the air is crisp. These cookies are soft, chewy, and filled with autumnal flavours that are inspired by a certain coffee chain's famous autumn drink. Perfect for Thanksgiving, Halloween, or just to enjoy in a cozy chair with your favourite book.

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Line two baking trays with baking parchment.
    2. Cream the two sugars and the softened butter together until fluffy.
    3. Crack the egg into a cup, add in 1 tablespoon maple syrup and beat lightly with a fork before adding into the sugar and butter mix. Mix to combine.
    4. Sift the flour and spices together into a bowl. Add the flour and spices slowly into the mixture, a few tablespoons at a time, beating together in between until all ingredients are combined.
    5. Take about 1 tablespoon of mixture, roll it into a ball using your hands, and place them on the trays spaced apart. Press lightly down with the palm of your hand to flatten them slightly.
    6. Bake in the preheated oven until slightly golden, about 8 to 10 minutes. They may look slightly undercooked when done but don't leave them in to go a darker golden as it will result in a hard biscuit.
    7. Transfer onto a wire rack to cool. Whilst they're cooling you can make the icing. This is optional but it tastes great! Alternatively dust with icing sugar and serve with your favourite hot drink.
    8. For the icing: Sift the icing sugar into a clean, dry bowl. Add 2 tablespoons maple syrup and mix together with a metal spoon. Slowly thin it out with a couple of drops of warm water until it is the desired thickness for you to decorate.
