Spices that go well with this recipe:
  • Cinnamon
  • Allspice
  • Ginger
  • Nutmeg
  • Cloves
  • Pumpkin Pie Spice
We love pumpkin pie spice because it is the perfect blend of most of these spices in one container. But if you have a preference for a certain spice, add it in “to taste” and you’ll love these cookies.
