Adapted from Glorious Treats
- 3-1/4 C all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp ground ginger
- 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp allspice
- 1 C (2 sticks) unsalted butter
- 2/3 C white sugar
- 1/3 C brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 C pumpkin puree
Step 1: Mix together flour, baking powder and spices in a large bowl.
Step 2: Beat together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy.
Step 3: Add egg, vanilla, and pumpkin and mix until well blended.
Step 4: Slowly add flour mixture and mix until all the flour is added. Keep mixing until the dough starts to ball together and pull away from the sides of the bowl.
Step 5: Scoop the dough out and divide into two balls; wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Step 6: After the time has passed, roll dough out onto a lightly floured work-station so that the dough is just about 1/4″ to 1/2″ thick. Cut out your awesome pickleball shapes!
Pro-tip: Make sure to really push down on the entire surface of the ball cookie cutter. Otherwise, your ball might be missing some holes 🙂
Step 7: Bake at 350 degrees on an ungreased baking sheet for 9-11 minutes (mine were perfect right at 10 minutes).
Step 8: Let cool on sheets for 4-5 minutes before transferring to a cooking rack. Store in an airtight container
Enjoy! The Pickleball Cookie Cutters are definitely not a “crumby” gift to receive 🙂 (Pun intended)
