Expert Tips

  • If pumpkin pie spice isn't handy, use 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg and 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger instead.
  • You can add 1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts.
  • Sprinkle the tops of the frosted cookies with pumpkin pie spice or ground nutmeg for an extra flavor boost and a special look.
  • In place of the butter, you can use 1/4 cup vegetable oil.
