A friend gave me the original recipe for "pumpkin pie cookies" but I wasn't happy with it, so I made some adjustments and was much happier with the results!

I also tried the icing with honey instead of maple syrup and it was great!

How to Make Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • 2Combine flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice and salt in a medium bowl.
  • 3In a separate bowl, beat butter and shortening about 30 seconds until smooth. Add both sugars and beat until light and fluffy.

    Add eggs and vanilla and mix well.
  • 4Add flour mixture about 1/2-1 cup at a time until it is all incorporated and well mixed.
  • 5Drop into rounded balls into prepared baking sheets and 10-12 minutes, cookies will be lightly browned.

    Cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to wire cooling racks to finish cooling.

    Store airtight. These are good for freezing to save for later as well.
