  • Beat brown sugar and butter together in a large bowl with an electric mixer until creamy, 1 to 2 minutes. Beat pumpkin, egg, and 2 teaspoons vanilla extract into butter mixture.

  • Whisk flour, 2 tablespoons cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, baking powder, cloves, allspice, and salt together in a bowl. Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture and stir until dough is completely combined.

  • Fill a cookie press with pumpkin cookie dough. Press cookies 2-inches apart on baking sheets.

  • Bake cookies in batches in the preheated oven until edges begin to brown, 5 to 8 minutes. Transfer cookies to wire racks to cool completely.

  • Whisk confectioners' sugar, milk, corn syrup, 4 teaspoons cinnamon, and 2 teaspoons vanilla extract together in a bowl to an icing consistency. Dip cooled cookies in icing and shake gently to remove excess. Place iced cookies on a sheet of waxed paper while icing dries.

The dough would not come out of the cookie press no matter what I tried. I rolled them into balls and flattened them with a fork worked out well. Read More

I had the problem where the dough would not release from the cookie press. The dough had a strange glue-y consistency. I rolled it into balls and flattened with a glass dipped in sugar. They turned out just ok. Not much flavor. I have another pumpkin cookie recipe I will stick with. Read More

I read previous reviews about the dough not being able to push through the press. So I added a little less flour and I also had 1 whole cup of pumpkin purée. But the dough was way too sticky and looked like a pile of "you know what" on my cookie sheet. The flavor of these cookies is not the best either. I can't taste any of the pumpkin too much spices. I ended up dropping these onto the sheet. The frosting is also horrible! I've never made frosting with this consistency before. Too runny and tastes too much like powdered sugar. Over all not a good baking experience as far as quality. At least I had fun with my kids though! Read More
