These pumpkin cookies will put you right in the mood for Fall. Soft and moist pumpkin cookies with brown sugar glaze. Perhaps only make a few at a time so you won’t want to eat the whole entire batch!
To celebrate the first day of Fall, I broke out the pumpkin and made these melt in your mouth pumpkin cookies. You know it’s Fall when all you see on Pinterest are pretty pictures of the orange and yellow leaves and recipes with pumpkin in them! The frosting on these cookies is to die for! You melt some butter and brown sugar in a pan and stir in some powdered sugar. Almost tastes like a caramel frosting. I’d just eat the frosting and be happy. 🙂 A good thing I only made half of the batter cause these cookies are sooo addicting.
I love it when Bath and Body Works breaks out their Fall scented flavors. They had this candle that smelled like pumpkin and blueberries and I was surprised because it smelled so good. I think this weekend I’m going to make some pumpkin muffins and put some blueberries in it. How can that be bad? People put cranberries in their pumpkin muffins. 🙂
