Here is a recipe from Melanie at Homestead and Bread for Pumpkin Pie Cookies. They sound so yummy. Make sure you pay Melanie a visit. It’s always so much fun discovering new blogs. Thanks, Melanie! 

“I posted this recipe last year on my blog, it’s a Family, husband & friends & neighbors & co-workers favorite :)”

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 cup fresh or canned pumpkin puree
1 egg
2 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 cups powdered sugar
3 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, pie spice and salt.

2. In a large bowl, cream together the 1/2 cup of butter and white sugar. Add pumpkin puree, egg and vanilla and beat until creamy. Mix in dry ingredients. Drop on cookie sheet by tablespoonfuls.

3. Bake for 12-15 minutes in the preheated oven. Let cool.

Combine confectioners’ sugar, milk, 2 tablespoons melted butter and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Add sugar or milk as needed to achieve desired consistency.

Some like to drizzle the cookies, I prefer a frosting consistency.

Many Blessings,




  1. I canu2019t believe how serendipitous this is! I just got online to find a recipe for pumpkin cookies but was doing my normal sweep of my favorite websites, and here was this recipe! Iu2019m going to give it a try this morning. Thanks Melanie for sharing this recipe. I really does look yummy!!!

  2. Okay, I’ll fess up. I have a sweet tooth, a very BIG sweet tooth. I drink Coke, need I say more? I like pumpkin but normally I think things made with pumpkin just aren’t sweet enough. I love the idea of icing these cookies. Right up my alley. Thanks Melanie. Going to give these a try.

  3. Does anyone know what I can use instead of the one egg? New allergy discovery…

    1. Try substituting a small, ripe banana or 1/3 cup applesauce.
