Maple Glazed Pumpkin Cookies

Maple Glazed Pumpkin Cookies

These cookies are superb. Soft and cake-like, not at all dense or sticky. The take on a beautiful shape while baking. What really makes the glaze soar is the light touch of cinnamon which brilliantly lifts the maple syrup in a soft and subtle way.

  • 2½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1½ teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup white sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ground cloves, and salt; set aside.

To Make Glaze:
  1. In small bowl whisk icing ingredients until smooth and creamy.
  2. Add more powdered sugar if too thin.
  3. Add more maple syrup (or heavy cream or milk) a teaspoons at a time if too thick.
Do not store them in an airtight container though - they have a lot of moisture from the pumpkin and get wet and mushy.
