Cookie Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups solid pack pumpkin
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 8 oz bag toffee bits, about 1⅓ cups

Glaze Ingredients

  • ½ cup butter
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp heavy cream
  • 1 - 3 tbsp water, only as needed


Cookie Directions

  • 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. Mix in toffee bits.
  • 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.

Glaze Directions

  • To make the glaze, brown the butter in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Let cool.
  • Mix in the powdered sugar, cream, and as much water as necessary to make a smooth glaze. Drizzle, pipe, or spread the glaze over cooled cookies.


Cookies will be moister the second day. I recommend storing them loosely covered vs airtight unless you live in a very humid climate.
