36 cookies



  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 1 ½ cups white sugar

  • ½ cup butter, softened

  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree

  • 1 egg

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar

  • 3 tablespoons milk

  • 1 tablespoon melted butter

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease two cookie sheets.

  2. Make cookies: Combine flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, cloves, and salt in a medium bowl.

  3. Cream together sugar and butter in a mixing bowl until fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Add pumpkin, egg, and vanilla; beat until creamy. Mix in flour mixture until combined. Drop tablespoonfuls of dough onto the prepared cookie sheets; flatten slightly.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until centers are set, 15 to 20 minutes, switching racks halfway through. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool to room temperature, about 30 minutes.

  5. Meanwhile, make icing: Stir together confectioners' sugar, milk, butter, and vanilla in a bowl until smooth. Add milk as needed, to achieve drizzling consistency.

  6. Drizzle icing over cooled cookies with a fork.
