DIY Spiced Pumpkin Cookies

I changed the scone recipe just a little to make these pumpkin cookies. They are really quick to mix up and just drop by the spoonful onto the cookiesheet.

Homemade Spiced Pumpkin Cookie Recipe
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree or canned pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup oil or melted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ginger
  • 1/8 tsp (or a pinch) cloves
  1. Mix all ingredients together in a large mixing bowl until well combined.
  2. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto a cookie sheet.
  3. Bake at 400 F for about 15 minutes until just lightly brown
  4. Remove from oven, and let cool.
  5. Make spiced powdered sugar glaze.

Spiced Powdered Sugar Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp milk
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
Combine spices and sugar, and add milk a Tbsp at a time until a nice consistency. Stir until smooth. Drizzle over cooled cookies. If you want to serve these for company, wait an hour or so for the glaze to harden, but I really have a hard time waiting more than a couple minutes to eat some myself. These are a great with tea, coffee, or milk.

(Makes about 2 dozen good sized cookies)

  1. I made these, but they don't look anywhere near what yours look like! Mine are basically dome shaped, and the icing is much darker than yours is for some reason? Still good, though!
