Cinnamon Frosted Pumpkin Cookies ~ Soft, Chewy Pumpkin Cookies Topped with Light and Fluffy Cinnamon Frosting!
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!
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!
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!
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!
Once again I’ve teamed up with OXO for #oxogoodcookie, a cause that I totally believe in 150%. OXO is supporting Cookies for Kids’ Cancer once again this fall and just for me making you some cookies they will donate to the cause plus you can help out too! For every stickered item sold, OXO will donate 25 cents in support of pediatric cancer research as part of its $100,000* pledge to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. Look for specially marked OXO products at participating retailers in September.
