Iced Pumpkin Cookies

I have been dying to make these iced pumpkin cookies that Nikki has on her blog. I have had the stuff for awhile and just haven’t had the time to do it, but I got off of work early yesterday and it was Halloween, so what better day to do it?! 🙂 I made these and took half of them to my in-laws on Halloween evening and I took the other half to work today. I can not tell you how many compliments I got on these cookies. People at work could not stop talking about them. I will definitely be making these again in a week or two I have a feeling!


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

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ground cloves, and salt; set aside.
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.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven. Cool cookies, then drizzle glaze with fork.

To Make Glaze: Combine confectioners’ sugar, milk, 1 tablespoon melted butter, and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Add milk as needed, to achieve drizzling consistency.

Pig Rating: The Pig doesn’t like pumpkin too well so he wasn’t chomping at the bit to try these. He now says he wishes he would have tried one just to see what all the fuss is about. Maybe next time Pig! : )

Mrs. Pig Rating: Oh.My.Gosh. This is the best cookie that I have ever made. So moist and full of awesome flavor. I love pumpkin bread, pumpkin bars, etc. and this is just another good one to add to the list. These are my new favorite dessert. I only allowed myself 3 of the whole batch, but I think that was the hardest thing I’ve done in a long time. I will be making these again VERY soon!
