Another rainy fall weekend, so I made cookies; Spiced Pumpkin Cookies to be exact.
I adapted this recipe from All Recipes.  Here’s what I did differently:
  1. I reduced the sugar to one cup
  2. Increased the spices to full teaspoons
  3. I skipped the icing (didn’t need it).

Adjust it to your taste and you can reduce a few calories, as well. Here’s the recipe.


  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  •  ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup butter (softened)
  • 1 ½ 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


  1. In a medium bowl, cream together the 1/2 cup of butter and white sugar.
  2. Add pumpkin, egg, and 1 teaspoon vanilla to butter mixture, and beat until creamy.
  3. Mix in dry ingredients. Drop on cookie sheet by tablespoonfuls; flatten slightly.
  4. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven.
  5. Cool cookies, then drizzle glaze with fork.

To Make Glaze:

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