I gave you a sneak peek of these soft pumpkin cookies last Saturday. They are so delicious and this is coming from someone who doesn't even like pumpkin pie! In fact, this is the only pumpkin-y treat that I'll eat.

Have I convinced you? Now here's the recipe for Libby's Glazed Pumpkin Cookies (courtesy of so you can taste for yourself how yummy these are!


  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter (1 stick), softened
  • 1 cup Libby's® 100% Pure Pumpkin
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Glaze (recipe follows)

Make sure you use 100% Pure Pumpkin (not Pumpkin Pie Filling!)



PREHEAT oven to 350° F. Grease baking sheets.

COMBINE flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in medium bowl. Beat sugar and butter in large mixer bowl until well blended. Beat in pumpkin, egg and vanilla extract until smooth. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto prepared baking sheets.

BAKE for 15 to 18 minutes or until edges are firm. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.


For Glaze: (Optional, but yummy)

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons milk
  • 1 Tablespoon melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
COMBINE powdered sugar, milk, melted butter and vanilla extract in small bowl until smooth.

DRIZZLE, POUR, OR SPOON over cooled cookies.

Bonus points: Pure pumpkin puree is an amazing source of Vitamin A and a good source of Vitamin C, Vitamin K, alpha-carotene and beta-carotene (see the full nutritional data here.)

When you make these cookies, you'll have a little bit of pureed pumpkin left over. I always let Little Sweets eat what's left over and she loves it. Pure pumpkin puree was one of the healthy "homemade" baby foods I gave her when she was first starting solids.
