What You Need:

  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon

What You Do:

  1. Start by helping your child gather the ingredients needed to bake the flavorful pumpkin cookies. They can measure and add the butter, sugars, and egg to the mixing bowl.
  2. Now they can use a mixing spoon to incorporate the ingredients, creating a nice smooth mixture. They can also preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  3. Invite your child to continue measuring and adding the ingredients along with the flower and then giving everything a final stir.
  4. They can coat the sheet pan with a drizzle of vegetable oil and then use a paper towel to cover the entire pan.
  5. Encourage your child to scoop spoonfuls of the batter onto the sheet pan leaving two inches of space between cookies.
  6. They can pop the cookies into the oven for about 12 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown.

Your child can serve their pumpkin cookies to the family alongside mugs of hot cocoa or apple cider on a crisp fall day!
