Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1 can canned pure pumpkin puree (NOT pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Frosting

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup lightly packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream (or other milk)
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • Instructions

  • In a medium bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice, and salt.
  • In a large bowl cream together butter and sugars until lightly and fluffy. Add pumpkin, egg, and vanilla and mix until thoroughly.
  • Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until combined. Use a cookie scoop (about 1 1/2 tablespoons dough) to drop mounds onto a lightly greased cookie sheet leaving about 2-3 inches between each cookie dough mound. Use the palm of your hand to slightly flatten each mound (press down about 1/2 inch to flatten the top a little bit).
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes. Allow to cool on the pan for about 5 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  • To make the frosting, melt butter in a medium sauce pan and boil for 2 minutes. Stir in brown sugar, reduce heat to medium-low and boil for 2 minutes. Stir in milk, remove from heat and pour into a large bowl. Stir in powdered sugar. Frost cooled cookies.
  • Store in airtight container at room temperature up to 5 days.
