Recipe for Pumpkin Cookies

When autumn arrives, it just wouldn’t be the same without baking pumpkin cookies from scratch.

Your kitchen will smell delightful and topped with my dreamy cinnamon frosting – they are to die for. Seriously. So double the recipe because they will not last long.


2-1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
3 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup homemade brown sugar, packed
3/4 cup white sugar
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 egg
1 tsp homemade pure vanilla extract
Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting, below

PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees.

Combine the first five ingredients together and set aside for now.

Cream the sugars with the butter until light and fluffy. Add the pumpkin, egg and vanilla. Now mix in the dry ingredients. Drop on a cookie sheet by tablespoons and flatten the top slightly. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes.


1 block cream cheese, softened
3 cups homemade powdered sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 tsp homemade pure vanilla extract
1/4 to 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)

In a bowl – combine the butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar, cinnamon and vanilla extract. Beat until the frosting is smooth and creamy. Frost the cooled cookies and sprinkle with the nuts.
