  • ½ cup butter very soft
  • ¼ cup pumpkin purée
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar packed
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ cups plus 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup toffee bits* plus more for garnishing, if desired
  1. Combine soft butter, pumpkin puree, egg yolk and vanilla in a medium-sized bowl. Mix until smooth and well blended. Add the pumpkin pie spice, baking soda and salt

  2. Add brown sugar and granulated sugar. Stir until smooth and creamy.
  3. Sprinkle the flour over the top of the pumpkin mixture and mix until well combined. Add toffee bits (if using) and stir again.

  4. Preheat oven to 350˚F. Line two sheet pans with parchment paper.
  5. Refrigerate dough for 15 minutes while the oven is preheating.

  6. Using a cookie scoop or a tablespoon, drop rounded scoops of dough onto prepared sheet pans, spacing 1 ½-2 inches apart. Bake for 10 minutes, then sprinkle ½-1 teaspoon toffee bits over the top of each cookie. Return to oven for another 3-5 minutes or until puffed and golden brown.

  7. If not using toffee bits for garnish, bake cookies for 14-16 minutes, or until puffed and golden brown. Allow cookies to cool (they will firm up) for several minutes before transferring from pan to a cooling rack. Cool complete then store in an airtight container.

Recipe Notes
  • *Toffee bits are optional. Cookies can be made without them and will still be delicious. You can also substitute pecans or walnuts for the toffee bits.
