YIAH Pumpkin Pie Spice cookies

I first discovered pumpkin pie spice way back in 2009 {that recipe is still one of our favourites} Premixed pumpkin pie spice hadn't reached the shores of Australia yet, so I hunted down a recipe on Baking Bites {still a favourite baking blog to read, with recipes that never fail!} and always have a supply in the cupboard, mixed and ready to go.

So, when my sister became a Your Inspiration at Home consultant, I wasn't going to try the pumpkin pie spice, or the apple pie spice. After all, mixing them myself just made sense. But as part of this 31 cookies project, I really wanted to showcase the YIAH products in a way that hadn't been done by other consultants {the recipe inspiration on their website comes from consultants, not the company} Noella sent me some pumpkin pie spice, and I scoured pinterest for recipe ideas.

This recipe is absolutely perfect. The icing is creamy and tangy, and the cookie is crumbly with just the right amount of spice. I don't usually bother frosting cookies, but I'm really glad I did these ones, it sets off the cookie just right; another cookie that was devoured by everyone quickly and quietly, and will be added to regular rotation.

3/4 cup butter, softened (185g)
3/4 cup caster sugar
1 egg
1tsp vanilla extract
1tsp pumpkin pie spice

  1. I love pumpkin spice flavour so these are right up my alley. And frosting on cookies - yes please!

  2. I'm hearing so much about YIAH that I think I'm going to have to give it a try asap, these look great!

  3. These are devine, I'm a YIAH consultant and I might also try them with the Apple Spice baking spice as well.
