Easy Pumpkin Cookie Recipe

Posted in : Cookies, Uncategorized on by : Karen Metz Tags: , ,

If you like a cookie that is more like a small frosted cake, or a cake like cookie, you will love this easy pumpkin cookie recipe. The cookie is full of pumpkin flavor and can be eaten alone or with this maple frosting. I liked them with and without the frosting. I was surprised that the pumpkin and maple flavors actually went together.

The recipe didn’t say this, but I think you should start by making the frosting. That way the frosting will be cooled by the time your cookies are cool. I made my frosting after I baked the cookies and I had to wait on my frosting to cool. So, if you make it first, it will save you time.
