Ingredients

Pumpkin Spice Cookies:

  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ginger
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup softened unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 x 15 oz 425 grams canned pureed pumpkin
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Maple Glaze:

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp maple extract
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups icing sugar

Instructions

Pumpkin Spice Cookies:

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Prepare 3-4 large baking sheets with non-stick paper.
  2. Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and salt into a medium bowl. Set aside.
  3. Beat together softened butter and sugar until creamy (2-3 minutes). Add pumpkin, egg, and vanilla. Beat until blended.
  4. Add sifted dry ingredients to pumpkin mixture and mix until well blended.
  5. Drop by the tablespoon onto parchment-lined cookie sheets. Bake for 15-18 minutes.
  6. Allow to cool on pan.

Maple Glaze:

  1. In a medium sauce pan, combine brown sugar with milk and butter, and heat to a boil. Allow to boil for 1 minute, then remove from heat. Add maple extract and sift in about a cup of icing sugar (add enough so that glaze is thick, but still spreadable). Whisk until smooth and combined.
  2. Dip cooled cookies into glaze and set on a cookie sheet to dry.
