For the Cookies

  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups solid pack pumpkin
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 4 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp salt

For the Glaze

  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 4-8 tablespoons milk


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large bowl, beat together butter and sugars until well creamed. Beat in eggs, pumpkin, and vanilla.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Add dry ingredients to the wet and stir until combined.
  • Drop dough by rounded tablespoons onto cookie sheets. Bake for 13-14 minutes or until edges are slightly browned. Do not overbake. Let cool completely.
  • To make the glaze, stir together the powdered sugar and enough milk to make a runny, but still spreadable consistency. Spread each cooled cookie with glaze
