Pumpkin Cookies In July

Cassie *


In my house we love these cookies, and it doesn't have to be Thanksgiving or Fall for me to make them.

I love making this big batch and freezing them, as they do freeze well.

How to Make Pumpkin Cookies In July


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degree F.

    Spray baking sheets with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Cream shortening and sugar; blending well. Add the two eggs. Mix in the pumpkin.

    Now, mix in the vanilla and the 5 cups of flour.

    Add the remaining spices, mix just until all is blended.
  3. Using a cookie scoop or I use a tablespoon and slide batter off with my finger. Trying to get them all pretty much the same size, so they bake evenly.

    Bake 10 - 12 minutes, cool 2 minutes, then place cookies on bakers rack to cool.
  4. Frosting:

    In medium mixing bowl, beat cream cheese with butter. Then mix in the confectioners' sugar and vanilla.

    Chill until ready to frost. I frosted some with a thinner drizzle by adding some cream to the frosting.

    Garnishing with cinnamon is optional.
