Ingredients

for the maple pumpkin cookies

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon maple extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

for the maple glaze

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 24 Tablespoons milk
  • 1 Tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  3. Add the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Mix until a soft dough forms and no streaks of flour remain.

  6. While the cookies cool, make the frosting. In a small bowl combine all ingredients for the frosting. Use a whisk to mix together until completeley smooth and glossy.
