It’s fall ya’ll!  I love all things pumpkin. (I even have a Pumpkin Food Pinterest board!) These cookies are one of the first things that I make when the weather turns cooler.   The icing on these is the best and makes these iced pumpkin cookies one of our family favorites.

I made these back in August so I could take some pictures for this post.  My kids and the neighbors were so happy.  They hadn’t had them in so long and left about six for me!

Eggless Pumpkin Cookies

Pumpkin is such a great food and I love it!  It’s high in vitamins A and C, low calorie, AND you can eat the seeds.  The seeds are high in fiber and have protein, which makes for a great snack.

I always stock up on canned pumpkin because you really use it in so many recipes.

These pumpkin cookies are very cakey and soft.  I don’t know about you, but a lot of times I’m in a hurry and take short cuts and leave steps out.  I’m telling you now, make sure you don’t skip the icing.

The icing is what makes these cookies the best!  When you take these out of the oven and place them on the cooling racks (these are the ones I have), make sure to put down wax or parchment paper on your counter.

When you drizzle the icing over the cookies, they will drip and it makes cleanup so much easier.

Ingredients for this Eggless Pumpkin Cookie Recipe.

  • Flour- I’ve had several people message me about using wheat flour. I have never used it for this recipe so I’m not sure how they’ll turn out. I’ve done many recipes with half wheat and half white flour and they have all turned out well. Again, I haven’t tried it with this recipe though.
  • Baking soda
  • Baking powder
  • Nutmeg
  • Cinnamon

You can replace nutmeg and cinnamon with pumpkin pie spice.

  • Salt
  • Sugar
  • Butter (vegan butter like Earth Balance is fine too)
  • Pumpkin puree
  • Water
  • Vanilla- You can make your homemade vanilla. Here are the instructions.

Icing Ingredients

  • Powdered sugar
  • Vanilla
  • Butter (Vegan butter is acceptable here too.)
  • Milk (You can use water if you are making this vegan.)

    I love these cookies. So do the 12 kids in our after school program! I mixed a little green food coloring into the icing to represent the vines in the pumkin patch. Yummy!! I wish I could share a picture
