Pumpkin Cookies

pumpkin cookies with maple glaze

With fall quickly making its way into our neighborhood, I have been getting the cozy, domestic feeling inside that inspires me to bake my butt off. And what screams ‘fall’ more than pumpkin? I decided to look up a pumpkin cookies recipe and chose this one from Very Best Baking due to the great ratings.

While the I was making these cookies, I had a yummy stew cooking in the crock pot and plans to use the rest of the canned pumpkin for dog cookies. Treats all around!

What the Cupcake? http://www.whatcupcake.com/
The recipe included a plain glaze, but I decided to use my mapleine imitation maple flavoring to make a maple glaze which was absolutely delicious. For the glaze, simply put about 1 cup of powdered sugar in a bowl, about 1/4 teaspoon mapleine and 1/2 teaspoon milk at a time, stirring completely until desired consistency is reached.

These cookies are super easy to make, plus they are friggin’ delicious! I can’t stop eating them!
