Time:  2 hours

Servings:  36 to 60 cookies, depending on size

  • ¼ teaspoon ground allspice
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup cold butter
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin puree
  • 1 egg (or equivalent Egg Replacer)


  1. In a small mixing bowl, stir together flour, potato starch, salt, cinnamon, allspice, cloves and nutmeg.

  8. Using your favorite cookie cutter, cut the dough into shaped cookies.
  9. Place cookies 1 inch apart onto lined cookie sheet.
  10. Let rest uncovered for 30 minutes to 1 hour; this helps the cookies keep their shape when baking.

  • 2 teaspoons Homemade Vanilla Extract
