Pumpkin Cookies


Last night I decided to finally get in and bake some pumpkin cookies. This was a new recipe I found, and I must admit they were really good. Soft, not too sweet, truly my type of cookie. They reminded me of a good spice cookie with the flavor of pumpkin.

Pumpkin Cookies

2 1/2 cups flour                                                                                                      

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cups sugar

1 cup pumpkin

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Cream butter and sugar in large mixing bowl. Mix in pumpkin, egg and vanilla until smooth. Gradually add dry ingredients. Batter will be very light and fluffy.

Drop by teaspoon onto cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

Allow to cool.

Drizzle with glaze:

2 cups sifted powder sugar, 1 tablespoon melted butter, 3 tablespoon milk, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.

My family truly enjoyed these, but my family isn’t that hard to satisfy when it comes to cookies. I am the picky one when it comes to sweets, so I will say they were very delicious.

  1. Looks good! I might try them next weekend, but I am also very tempted by Pumpkin Chocolate Chip cookies from Mama Smiles. My daughter usually loves anything that features chocolate chips :)

  2. mmmmmm, need to make some cookies soon.
