  1. 1

    Prep cookie dough

    • Pro Tip: Leave butter and eggs at room temperature for 1 hour before beginning. This will soften butter for easy mixing and ensure more even distribution of eggs in the dough.
    • In medium bowl, stir together flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
    • In bowl of stand mixer with paddle attachment or in large bowl with wooden spoon, combine butter and granulated sugar; mix until creamy and well incorporated.
    • Add pumpkin puree, egg and vanilla; mix well.
    • Add flour mixture and mix well; continue to mix for 30 seconds to thoroughly blend dough.

  2. 2

    Portion cookies

    • Pro Tip: Portioned cookie dough can be refrigerated for up to 3 days or frozen for up to 3 months.
    • Scoop about 1 heaping tablespoon dough per cookie. Place 3 cookies 3–4 inches apart in each zone of Brava metal tray (total of 9 cookies).
