You ask for pumpkin cookies, you get pumpkin cookies! :mrgreen:


Pumpkin Spice Cookies

Makes 8 cookies


  • 1 cup spelt flour
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 4 tbsp softened butter
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed meal
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ginger
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1/2 cup raisins


  • Preheat oven to 325*F.
  • Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.
  • Grease a baking sheet and portion dough into 8 large cookies.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes until cookies start to light brown.
  • Allow to cool and enjoy!

If I had to give these cookies a grade, I’d give them a big, fat A. The only thing that would get them an A+ is a thick layer of cream cheese frosting on top! 😉 These babies taste just like a pumpkin muffin top with a hearty mix of walnuts and raisins. I’m a big fan.

You also asked for photos of Murphy, right? Your wish is my command! 😉










  1. Pumpkin Spice Cookies—yum, yum!!!! A must-try! Thanks for sharing the recipe, Tina!

    LOVE the pictures of Murphy…my favorite blog entry on him is “Workaholic Pug”. That was priceless!!!

  2. I am in love with Murphy! I love seeing that face…makes me smile every day! Thanks for sharing his fabulous personality with me:)

    On another note…I will be making these cookies this week!

  3. murphy photos are my fave too!!!!
    have you checked out perezhilton’s newest website? It is called, in honor of his dog. It is the cutest site and there are a lot of fun/cute videos and also easy access to suppportive animal organizations on the site. Tina, you should check it out. Maybe your blog can bring attention to some of the organizations mentioned since your blog is soo popular, and obviously your readers are animal lovers considering how popular Murphy is.
    Just a thought!

  4. He is so photogenic! I love how he has so many different faces. I was never really a big fan of pugs but reading your blog had made me think they’re one of the best dogs around!

    Those cookies look delicious! I’ll definitely have to give them a try.

  5. I love the pictures of Murphy. He’s such a looker! 😉 I’m going to have to try these cookies. They look phenomenal and for some reason I just can’t commit to pumpkin bread.

  6. i never knew how much i wanted a dog until i started reading your blog! your pug is adorable!
    through a unexpected set of circumstances my fiance and i (we’re getting married in about a month!!!!) were given a 9 week old boston terrier and he has drastically improved our lives by about a million percent!
    love reading your blog!

  7. These look extremely festive and delicious… you think they would store well? I’m trying to send them to a friend across the country – hoping they will still be fresh!

  8. Wow, I just made them and they are a success. I have a ton of pumpkin to use up and a good cup goes into these :D. I made them in my mini cupcake pan though and they are super cute and super tasty. Yum. I have a feeling these will not last long.

  9. It’s like you read my mind the day you posted this! I had been looking up recipes online for pumpkin cookies that morning! I have a batch of these cookies in the oven right now, and if the batter is anything to judge them by, they’ll be pretty tasty. I also made some vanilla buttercream frosting to add to ’em as well.
