Yes. I’m going there. Pumpkin. You know you love it. You want it. You crave it.

How do I know so much about you? It’s kind of scary isn’t it?

It’s because all of a sudden my pumpkin recipes are going crazy. Can anyone say Cinnamon Chip Pumpkin Cookies or Overnight Pumpkin Cheesecake French Toast Casserole? You guys all seem to be in the mood for it. I don’t really blame you, I mean it is a fantastic ingredient so why do we only eat it in the fall? Maybe you are a rebel and enjoy it all year long. Go you. I don’t blame you one bit!Cinnamon Frosted Pumpkin Cookies ~ Soft, Chewy Pumpkin Cookies Topped with Light and Fluffy Cinnamon Frosting!

Maybe you are looking for a new sweet treat to indulge in this fall. I bet you are dreaming of a soft, chewy cookie loaded with pumpkin and spices then it would be topped off with a fluffy cinnamon frosting. Am I right? I know I am!

  MY OTHER RECIPES


Lucky for you today I’m making it happen. I saw your dreams and I met them, embraced them and this is the answer to them all. Just say Cinnamon Frosted Pumpkin Cookies!

I’m magic.

Unfortunately my magical abilities stop with cookies and do not go onto magically making my house clean or my laundry done. Dang. I thought I was good!

You know what else is pretty cool about this amazing Cinnamon Frost Pumpkin Cookies recipe? The fact that I got to make it with the assistance of my favorite OXO tools of course! They sent me a cute little package full of wonderful tools like their spatulas that I have in about every color plus  a  3-in-1 Egg Separator, Icing Knife, and these cool cookie cutters!

I bet you are wondering why… don’t worry I’ll let you in on the secret!

    This is definitely one magical cookie, Julie! The flavor combination and the great cause behind them. I’m getting my OXO tools asap to make these cookies!

  • Ashley


    These sound amazing Julie!

  • Renee@Two+in+the+Kitchen


    These look so delicious! They remind me of “Cheryl’s” if you have ever tried those! But cookies always taste so much better homemade. I am pinning these and making them this season for sure!! 🙂

    • Julie Evink


      I haven’t ever tried those!

  • Luci {Luci's Morsels}


    I felt like the jump to pumpkin was simultaneously across the blogosphere! I haven’t shared anything pumpkin on my blog yet, but I’m dreaming it all up and I have already started in on squash, sweet potatoes, and beets.

    I’m a major cookie monster, so I’m drooling a bit over here looking at these morsels!

    Luci’s Morsels – fashion. food. frivolity.

    Thanks for this Mouth Watering Recipe Evink 🙂

  • Amy+@+A+Healthy+Life+For+Me


    Yes, please i would like a dozen right now. My Mom use to make a version of this recipe when I was a kid. Loved them!

  • Cheri


    The cinnamon frosted pumpkin cookies. Can you use butter if you don’t have shorting?

    • Julie Evink


      Substituting the shortening for butter will change the texture of the cookie. I won’t say it won’t work, but it will be different than the one pictured.

  • Donna Holm


    Hi Julie, this looks like a great recipe; I’ll try it soon! You did manage to confuse me, however… The print link to get the recipe leads to the recipe, alright, but it is titled “Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosted Pumpkin Cookies,” I went back to study it, and, nope! no cream cheese was harmed in the making of this recipe…

    • Julie Evink


      I fixed the title in the recipe box. I think that was from my “brainstorming” before I created the recipe and it never got corrected. Sorry!
