Chocolate Pumpkin Cookies


These Chocolate Pumpkin Cookies literally taste like fall. There is only one time of the year that I can eat cinnamon and that is fall leading up to Christmas, so when the season comes, I eat as much of it as I can! These cookies make perfect use of the earthy spice!

I start by making cookie dough with canned pumpkin. Then I fold in chocolate chips. I drop tablespoonfuls of the dough onto baking sheets and bake in the oven. Once cooked, I remove them from the oven and make a brown sugar glaze while the cookies cool. To make the glaze, mix brown sugar, butter and milk in a small saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil. Then remove from the heat and add powdered sugar. Beat with an electric mixer until smooth. Drizzle the glaze over the cookies and enjoy!
