Pumpkin Cookies

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a bowl mix the olive oil, brown sugar, granulated sugar, egg, pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla extract, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. 
  • Mix until well combined. Add in the flour and mix well.
  • With a medium-sized cookie scoop (about 1 ½ – 2 Tbsp), scoop the dough and place evenly on your cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 12-13 minutes, or until cookies are set. 
  • Allow cooling completely before adding the maple frosting.

Maple Frosting

  • With a hand mixer beat butter until light and fluffy, about 1-2 minutes.  Add in the maple syrup and vanilla extract.  Beat until everything is mixed well.
  • Mix in the powdered sugar, ½ cup at a time, mixing until everything is combined. Add in 2-3 tsp of milk and beat until well mixed.
  • If the maple frosting feels too runny, you can add in some powdered sugar.  If it gets too thick add a little more milk.
  • Spread the maple frosting on the pumpkin cookies and enjoy!
