Pumpkin Spice Cookies

Pin It

I am obsessed with anything pumpkin spice. From my lattes to my Scentsy, as soon as the first leaves fall you can bet my place is smelling like a pumpkin pie! I first made these little cookies last year and they are so delicious and SO EASY!!! They have a soft cake like texture and freeze surprisingly well so you can *try to* avoid eating the whole batch at once.


  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ground cloves, and salt; set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the 1/2 cup of butter and white sugar. Add pumpkin, egg, and 1 teaspoon vanilla to butter mixture, and beat until creamy. Mix in dry ingredients. Drop on cookie sheet by tablespoonfuls; flatten slightly.
  3. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven. Cool cookies, then drizzle glaze with fork.
  4. To Make Glaze: Combine confectioners' sugar, milk, 1 tablespoon melted butter, and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Add milk as needed, to achieve drizzling consistency.

Sorry for the horrible light, it was night and my apartment doesn't yield the best lighting ;)

I just dipped my cookies straight into the icing, but you can feel free to get creative and drizzle some fancy design or even do without the icing! I must say they are delicious either way. This recipe makes about three dozen cookies. Enjoy!!!
