Melt-In-Your-Mouth Pumpkin Cookies.

This cookies tastes just like the title, melt-in-your-mouth, moist and delicious with a hint of cinnamon and nutmeg pumpkin cookies.  Perfect for Halloween and Thanksgiving celebration.

Pumpkin Cake Topper tutorial {here}.


Melt-In-Your-Mouth Pumpkin Cookies

~ 2 cups butter, softened
~ 2 cups granulated sugar
~1/2 teaspoon baking powder
~ 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
~ 1/2 teaspoon salt
~ 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
~ 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
~ 2 eggs
~ 2 teaspoon vanilla
~  15 once pumpkin
~ 4 cups all-purpose flour
~ 1/2 cup butter
~ 1/2 packed brown sugar
~ 1/4 cup milk
~ 1 teaspoon vanilla
~ 2-3/4 cups powdered sugar

1. Preheat Oven to 3530 deg. F. In a large bowl, beat 2 cups butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add granulate sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Beat until combined, scraping bowl occasionally. Add eggs and 2 teaspoons vanilla; beat until combined. Beat in pumpkin. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Using a wooden spoon, stir in any remaining flour.

2. Drop dough by heaping teaspoons 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 - 12 minutes or until tops are set. Transfer cookies to a wire rack; let cool.

3. In a small saucepan, heat 1/2 cup butter and brown sugar until melted and smooth. Transfer to a medium bowl. Stir in milk and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat in powdered sugar until smooth. Spread frosting on cookies. {Note; as I was doing this I think it is better to let the icing cool for 1/2 an hour because then it will not too runny when spread the icing on cookies}. If desired, sprinkle with additional cinnamon. Makes about 60 cookies.


Good Luck Everyone!
