More pumpkin coming your way today! In the form of deliciously soft-baked pumpkin sugar cookies. These glazed pumpkin sugar cookies were single handedly the downfall of my diet for the day. I’ve said it before but sugar cookies of any kind are my weakness. Like I literally lose whatever self control I have around them. 

I’ve been really good about eating my salad for lunch each day but the day I made these cookies I realized that I had eaten quite a few of them so I decided to call it lunch. I know, not healthy in the least bit but man oh man are they delicious.

The cookie dough alone is so tempting. The recipe as is makes about 4 dozen cookies and I was only able to get about 3 dozen because my little girl and I kept taking finger swipes of the dough. It’s really good. Do yourself a favor and try the cookie dough. 

I know some may not like the idea of raw cookie dough but if eating raw eggs were that bad for you then I’d be dead by now, haha 🙂 But seriously, you know if the dough is that good then the cookies have got to be amazing.

How to make Pumpkin Sugar Cookies

It’s a simple sugar cookie dough with some added canned pumpkin + pumpkin pie spice. Scoop it onto the cookie sheet and then press down with the bottom of a glass cup that’s been dipped in sugar. These cookies don’t spread at all while baking, so pressing them down ensures that they will be a cookie shape. 

The glaze is a simple powdered sugar + milk glaze with some pumpkin spice added in. Spread that over the cooled cookies and then let it set so the glaze can harden.

Or, eat one warm with the gooey glaze. You won’t regret it! Promise.

Add these to your pumpkin baking list this Fall. Thick, puffy, chewy, soft-baked sugar cookies with pumpkin and pumpkin spices. You really can’t get better than that. You might get very close with these pumpkin pie crumble bars . Those crumble bars and these pumpkin sugar cookies are probably my favorite pumpkin desserts that are on the blog.

Let me know what you think! I love hearing form everyone and anyone. Thanks for visiting.

Ingredients
Pumpkin Sugar Cookies
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup pure pumpkin
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
Pumpkin Spice Glaze
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 3-4 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper, baking mats, or spray with cooking spray.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add softened butter, oil, pumpkin, sugars, vanilla and eggs. Use a hand held blender (or in the bowl of a stand mixer) and blend together until smooth and combined.
  3. Add the flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, salt, and pumpkin pie spice. Blend together on low speed just until combined and no flour streaks remain.
  4. Take about 2 tablespoons of dough and roll into a ball (about the size of a golf ball) place 12 dough balls per cookie sheet.
  5. Dip the bottom of a glass cup into granulated sugar and press down on each dough ball to flatten.
  6. Bake for 8-9 minutes. Let cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes and then remove to cooling rack to cook completely.
  7. To make glaze combine all ingredients in a bowl and whisk together. Use more or less milk depending on how thick you want the frosting. Spread onto each cookie and let sit for several minutes to harden.
Recipe Notes

Make sure that you use the pure pumpkin NOT the pumpkin pie filling.

      October 6, 2017 at 10:41 am As far as I know they're the same thing. I just use Libby's 100% pure pumpkin. It comes pureed in the can already. Hopefully that helps :) Enjoy!

    October 11, 2017 at 3:54 pm These cookies did not turn out well. All you could taste was flour. They look so delicious; I wish they tasted that way.

    October 13, 2017 at 3:10 pm Something wasn't right, that came out "doughy" or too much flour. The flour to liquid ratio wasn't right.

      October 14, 2017 at 1:18 pm I am remaking the recipe (as I wrote it) this weekend to make sure I typed it all out right. I've gotten a few negative reviews on this recipe whish is so odd cause I seriously could not stop eating them, haha :) Make sure you are using pure pumpkin NOT the pumpkin pie filling. Not sure what else the problem could be. I'm so sorry these did not work out for you. I hate it when recipes don't work out. Thank you for coming back to let me know.

      October 30, 2017 at 11:10 pm haha, I was sad too when I sent the leftovers with my husband to work. I regretted it soon after :) The dough is my favorite part! I always have to take a test with a spoon before making the dough into cookies!

    October 29, 2017 at 5:31 pm I've made these twice now; once exactly as the recipe called for above, and the second time I used a full cup of pumpkin and omitted the oil, because I just didn't think they were "pumpkiny" enough. Even the second time, they just didn't hardly taste at all like pumpkin. They're yummy, soft cookies, but definitely don't satisfy my craving for pumpkin things.

      October 30, 2017 at 11:08 pm Yes, the pumpkin flavor is subtle in these. If you're looking for all out pumpkin then maybe try making a pumpkin cookie. These are more of a sugar cookie with light pumpkin flavor. Thank you for coming back to leave your feedback :)

    December 10, 2017 at 11:54 am While I agree with the other commenters the pumpkin and spice are very subtle, I loved these cookies. I amped up the cinnamon in the glaze and found the combination to be delightful. I posted about them on my blog and would love if you check my post out :) http://piesandplots.net/pumpkin-sugar-cookies-sundaysupper/

    September 21, 2018 at 6:30 pm I should have read the reviews before making. I even added more spices in the second tray, the consistency is soft, but not like a cookie. It reminded me of a odd pancake.

      September 23, 2018 at 10:06 pm Did you use pure pumpkin and NOT the pumpkin pie filling? That's the only reason I can think that these cookies would not turn out. I've made them several times (just again last week) and they are a favorite. So sorry they did not turn out for you.

    October 7, 2018 at 6:22 pm Hey! I'm really not getting close to 4 dozen cookies (not sampling the batter :) - more like a dozen and a half. I've followed all the measurements exactly and using a 2tbsp cookie scoop. Has this happened to you?

      October 13, 2018 at 12:48 pm I'll have to check my recipe for the amount it makes. I may have just typed it in wrong, which could be very likely... I'll update the recipe when I find out for sure. Or I will just have to make them again :) !

    November 15, 2018 at 6:09 am This recipe turned out terrible. I followed everything correctly. Step by step. I used pure pumpkin. The dough just didn’t turn out like cookie dough for me and after cooking them they were more of a pancakey consistency. Would not recommend this recipe what so ever! 😏

      November 16, 2018 at 11:37 am So sorry to hear this. For some reason lots of people are not having good results with this recipe. I made these over the weekend to double check the recipe and they turned out great, so I am not sure what the problem is. Thanks for coming back and leaving your feedback :)

    November 25, 2018 at 6:38 pm Made this recipe and absolutely loved them!!!!! Thank you so much :) I was wondering if there was a way to adapt this recipe for just regular sugar cookies, because I think those would be fab as well (when pumpkin isn’t in season)!
