Hello! Before it’s too late I want to share a fall-inspired cookie recipe, but there’s a little story to tell first. I used to have a recipe card for Iced Pumpkin Cookies in my recipe box. It was old and stained, but still readable. I know it was there like I know my own name.
When I went to look for it a few days ago it was gone. I sat and looked through every single card, slip of paper, and torn magazine page in my box. It was not there. So…I wasn’t sure what to do. After all, that was MY pumpkin cookie recipe. I found the next best thing in an old cook book that was my grandmother’s. It’s called Betty Crocker’s Cooky Book.
Sure enough, there on page 30, was this basic, very-close-to-my-own pumpkin cookie recipe. I made just a few updates and left out the raisins. Here’s what I came up with.
The Best Iced Pumpkin Cookies
These cookies are simply amazing and so moist they almost melt in your mouth. You could leave the icing off but honestly, it adds the perfect finishing touch. There are no weird ingredients either. If you have a can of pumpkin, head to the kitchen because you are good to go.
If you are looking for another easy pumpkin treat, here’s my Pumpkin Bread. This recipe is very simple too and makes enough to freeze or give away. It’s also so moist it will melt in your mouth. I make this every September, early in the month, and it completely gets me in the mood for fall!
Thanks for stopping by…see you soon!
