Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies with Brown Sugar Icing

Honestly the texture of pumpkin cookies usually grosses me out a bit. These didn’t however. These melted in my mouth and with the brown sugar icing they are heaven. The only thing I would change is make them a little smaller because they are so rich. We took these to our Scout’s spaghetti dinner and they were gone quickly.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies with Brown Sugar Icing


  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup pumpkin
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • Frosting:
  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 cups powdered sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cream together the white sugar, brown sugar, and butter. Add the pumpkin, vanilla, and egg and mix well.
  3. In a separate bowl sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and salt. Add to the wet mixture.
  4. Stir in the milk chocolate chips.
  5. The dough we be very wet still. Bake cookies at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes depending how large your cookies are. I cook all my cookies on parchment paper. Allow to cool then frost.

Speak Your Mind



  1. mmmm…

  2. Umm, hello!! I could go for one of these right now! Lucky scouts!

  3. the cookies tasted great……but the icing turned out to taste like burnt nuts and rubber???! we even tried adding some spices to it ….. we decided to drizzle some of it on top of some of the cookies…maybe it will balance out…

  4. I tried these and sent them to my kids at college. We thought the cookies were too soft and not that flavorful before they were iced and I then sent them off. My kids couldn’t stop RAVING about how WONDERFUL these are. I made them for Thanksgiving but again, a day before we needed them and they raved again. My oldest just made them for her office baking party and WON!. and we’re big chocolate fans so you know these have to be good to replace chocolate!!!

  5. These cookies are TO DIE FOR! I used regular cream cheese icing instead ๐Ÿ™‚
