Pumpkin Cookies with Cinnamon Glaze
These Pumpkin Cookies are full of cinnamon, spice and everything nice! Then they are topped with cinnamon glaze. They were a massive hit with all of my taste testers and have me craving all things pumpkin. 🙂
As far as cookies go, these are certainly more of the cakey variety, but they are absolute cookie perfection. They are super moist, and the glaze makes them even moister. Plus, the spices in the cookie and the additional cinnamon in the glaze ramp up the flavor and will make you want to shove 5 cookies in your mouth at a time. I might have done it myself.
Ok not really, I do have some self control. But it took all of it to not do that. 🙂
One thing to note when baking these is that unlike the other cookie recipes I have where you want to under bake the cookies just slightly, you don’t want to under bake these. If you under bake them, they will stay under baked. Instead, watch them as they get close to being done and take them out just as the tops start to look done. They spread a fair bit while baking, but you’ll still want to flatten them just a bit before baking. If they stay too tall, the bottom will get too cooked before the tops are done.
So I have to say, I had the nicest weekend. We have been crazy busy every weekend for the past month, so it was nice to have a free weekend. The hubs was even busy and out of the house most of the weekend, so I got to get reacquainted with one of my favorite things – baking on the weekends. Stress-free, care-free baking. It felt like such a novelty.
It’s hard being busy so many weekends in a row because then almost all of my baking has to take place during the week, when I’m also writing posts and doing countless other things. I’ve been feeling like my creativity was getting a little zapped with the stress of it all.
It finally came back to me this weekend. I got to sleep in, work out, be a little lazy and bake with no time limit. I am so pumped for all the baking coming up now! I’ve decided fall is my new favorite season because of all the spices and flavors. I LOVE me some cinnamon and find myself adding plenty of it and I don’t have to apologize for it in fall recipes. Yay! 🙂
I just bought a big new bottle of ground cinnamon and I hope to use very last bit of it. Get ready. What do you say we start with these cookies?
