Pumpkin Sugar Cookies with Yummy Pumpkin Spice Glaze

I love Fall so much! I can never get enough Pumpkin! Which is really funny because if you met me 3 years ago…. I hated anything pumpkin! Then one day my tastebuds just changed I guess and I’m so glad they did because I LOVE IT now!! Its the best coming into a house that is filled with yummy pumpkin spice smells!

These Pumpkin Spice Sugar Cookies are to die for! Seriously mouth watering! I found a pumpkin sugar cookie recipe and modified it a bit to a cookie that I like better! Adapted from “Lauren’s Latest” (check her out! She has an amazing food blog) This recipe is super simple! I also topped them with a yummy pumpkin spice glaze like Lauren does! I hope you all drool over these like me ha!

Don’t you love how a cookie scooper makes the perfect little “ice cream ball” scoops!?

All the cups in my house have some sort of design on the bottom… So thats why my cookies have flowers on them! Any glass cup will work fine! 

oh hello there baby bump! 

Me trying to focus on what my husband is telling me to do with my hands for these photos! haha!


*1/2 cup Butter (softened)

*1/2 cup Vegetable Oil

*1/2 cup Canned Pumpkin

*1/2 cup Powdered Sugar

*1 cup Sugar

*1 teaspoon Vanilla

*2 large Eggs

*4 cups of All Purpose Flour (I like using unbleached)

*1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda

*1/4 teaspoon Cream of Tartar

*1/2 teaspoon Salt

* 1 teaspoon Cinnamon

*1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg

Pumpkin Spice Glaze

*3 to 3 1/2 cups of Powdered Sugar

*1/4 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice

*4 tablespoons Water


  1. In a large mixing bowl combine butter, oil, pumpkin, sugars, vanilla, and eggs. Using a stand up mixer (like a kitchen aid) or a hand mixer until smooth. Don’t panic if it looks a little bit runny, it will thicken up.
  2. In a separate bowl combine all the dry ingredients. After combined, add them into the mixing bowl. Slowly mix together until thick and smooth. Your dough should look like regular sugar cookie dough now (but orange of course)!
  3. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. I like to line my cookie sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. It makes it easier for clean up and prevents your cookies from sticking to the pan or over cooking.
  4. Using a cookie scoop, scoop heaping tablespoon sized balls of dough and place across the pan.
  5. To flatten the cookies to 1/2 inch thick use the bottom of a glass. If your dough is sticking to your cup, dip the bottom of the cup in sugar or flour first.
  6. Bake for 8-9 minutes.
  7. While the cookies are baking mix together the glaze.
  8. When the cookies are finished, let them sit on the pan for 3-4 minutes before moving them to cooling racks.
  9. Glaze the cookies when they are still warm, let the glaze harden for 2-3 hours. Or if you are like me…. eat them warm and melty!
