Pumpkin Cookies Recipe


Thanksgiving may be over but it’s never too late to make pumpkin cookies. This recipe for pumpkin cookies makes a great treat for any holiday or special occasion. Make a batch of these for Christmas this year, you won’t be disappointed. These cookies are light and extremely moist. They remind me of a lot of pumpkin bread only with glaze. The glaze is very delicious and really is a great addition to the cookie. If you’re not a fan of icing, not to worry, they will still be great without it. The cookies get most of their flavor from spices such as cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. The cookies should be baked for 15-20 minutes depending on how moist you want them. These are very easy to make and you will be eating them in no time at all. Pumpkin cookies are great for the holidays. Enjoy.

I have made many different veriations of these cookies over the years, and though the glaze is great as is i have found you can apeal to your adult desire by making it with captin morgan, nothing like a lil spiced rum to add a touch of compliment to the spices that bring the cookies alive!
