1632465558_182_ICED-PUMPKIN-COOKIESIngredients for an Iced Pumpkin Cookie

-Flour: To make a gluten-free foundation for these cookies, we’ll need 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour.

-Baking Soda: This leavening ingredient aids in the rising of the cookies, making them light and fluffy. We just need 1 teaspoon.

-Salt: A half teaspoon of salt will assist to bring out the flavors in the dough.

-Spices: 1 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg are required to get the desired pleasant autumn taste and fragrance.

-Butter: These cookies may be made using 1/2 cup (one stick) softened butter or margarine.

1632465560_519_ICED-PUMPKIN-COOKIES-Sugar: We’ll use 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar to make some delectably sweet cookies.

-Pumpkin: 1 cup fresh or canned pumpkin puree adds a natural pumpkin taste and color to the dish.

-Egg: Using one egg in this dough will assist to keep the cookies from crumbling and falling apart.

-Vanilla extract: Vanilla extract enhances other tastes and serves as a foundation for them to grow from. To accomplish this, we’ll need 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence (I like the higher-quality vanillas, but use what you have on hand).

-Nuts or Chocolate Chips: These are optional add-ins that may be used to make your cookies taste different.

-Icing Ingredients: A simple powdered sugar glaze made with powdered sugar, milk, butter, and vanilla tastes wonderful on top of these cookies.

1632465561_350_ICED-PUMPKIN-COOKIESRecipe for Pumpkin Cookies

Preheat the oven to 350°F and oil a cookie sheet lightly. Remove from the equation.

Combine the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a medium mixing basin. Combine all of the ingredients. Remove from the equation.

Combine the butter, sugar, pumpkin, egg, and vanilla in a separate bowl. If desired, include any of the optional add-ins. It’s OK if the mixture seems lumpy.

Slowly fold the flour mixture into the egg and pumpkin combination in 2-3 batches until completely integrated.

1632465562_973_ICED-PUMPKIN-COOKIESDrop the cookie dough mixture onto the prepared baking sheet using a spoon or cookie dropper. Separate the cookies by at least 2 inches.

Preheat the oven to 350°F and bake for 15 minutes.

Set the cooked cookies on a wire cooling rack to cool until completely cold, then place the wire rack on top of the cookie sheet before glazing. This will assist in catching drips.

In a small bowl, mix together all of the ingredients for the icing until smooth. If necessary, add additional milk to thin the consistency to the desired thickness.

Allow to cool and solidify before pouring over cookies.

With a large glass of cold milk, this dish is best. Enjoy!
