These Soft and Chewy Pumpkin Spice Cookies are exactly what they sound like. They are simple soft and chewy cookies that are filled with pumpkin spice.

I love most things pumpkin. Sadly, my husband doesn’t really appreciate most of them, but that’s a different story.

Anyway, I wanted to make these cookies as soon as I saw them. Chewy, honey, and pumpkin. Sounds amazing, right? Well, the funny thing is I didn’t even realize until I started making them that¬†they don’t have any pumpkin in them! Just pumpkin spice!

But, I was in the midst of cookie-making and you can’t really stop that once it’s begun, can you? I persevered and it paid off. These cookies are delicious, chewy, pumpkin spice goodness and you should go make them.
