Recipe - Pumpkin Cookies

Pumpkin Cookies

To continue the fall recipe theme, here are some cookies that I make every fall, usually more than once.  I got the recipe from a friend whose husband was in school with Dan at ND.  They are light and fluffy and cakey, yum...

Beat together until fluffy:
  • 1 Cup cooking oil
  • 1 2/3 Cups sugar
  • 1 (16oz) can of pumpkin
Stir together and add to pumpkin mixture above:
  • 2 Cups flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. soda
Bake dollops of dough for 12-15 minutes at 350 degress on an ungreased cookie sheet.

When cool, frost with a mixture of:
  • 1 (3oz) package of cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 Cup butter, softened
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 Cups (or more if needed) powdered sugar


  1. Thanks!!!! Yummy...maybe I'll make these for church tommorrow night unless you plan to?!

  2. YUM!!! I cannot get enough pumpkin these days. Last night was pumpkin soup, day before was pumpkin scones, before that pumpkin bars....these may be deadly :)

  3. So glad you all enjoy these! Just made a batch here, myself! Happy pre-Thanksgiving!!
