Pumpkin Cookies

Made a batch of pumpkin cookies last night and ate them by the fire. Doesn't get much better than that. (I like mine sans chocolate chips. So I usually make half the batch with and half without.)

Edit: My apologies for not including the recipe when I first published the post. Here it is. I hope you love it.


Old-Fashioned Soft Pumpkin Cookies
I found the recipe years ago at

2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter (1 stick) softened
1 cup 100% pumpkin (you can find cans of this in the pie-filling section of the grocery store)
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
Glaze (see below)
Optional: 1/2 cup chocolate chips or nuts.

Preheat oven to 350. Grease baking sheets.

Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt and set aside. Beat sugar and butter in large bowl until well blended. Beat in pumpkin, egg and vanilla extract until smooth. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto prepared baking sheets.

Bake for 15 to 18 minutes or until edges are firm. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Drizzle glaze over cookies.

For Glaze:
Combine 2 cups powdered sugar, 3 tablespoons milk, 1 tablespoon melted butter and 1 tsp vanilla in small bowl until smooth.

PS: DO people really put chocolate chips with pumpkin? Is that good?! I might put a little ginger in with pumpkin...mmmmm.

I like my pumpkin cookies without chips and with a little glaze, as you've shown. We can't get canned pumpkin in Russia, but we only miss it at this time of year. :)

I'm just getting ready to make these but is vanilla missing from the cookie ingredients?? It says beat in pumpkin, egg and vanilla but I do not see the amount in the list.
