Pumpkin cake cookies with maple pecan glaze are the perfect sweet treat for fall!

A long time ago I make chocolate cake cookies and they were so easy. In the spirit of fall I decided to try a version with pumpkin. These pumpkin cake cookies have a maple pecan icing on top, which turned out even better than I imagined. They are moist, yet crispy, and have all the yummy, sugary, flavors of fall. In addition to that, they are super simple to make.

Pumpkin Cake Cookies, with Maple Pecan Icing
Author: Kelley Wilson
Ingredient List
Pumpkin Cake Cookies:
  • 1 Box Pillsbury Pumpkin Cake Mix
  • 1/2 cup softened unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 2 eggs
Maple Syrup Icing:
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar
  • 2 T brown sugar
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter melted
  • 4 T pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 T Vanilla
  • 1/2 cup crushed pecans
  1. Mix together the ingredients for the cookies, then take a tablespoon of the dough and roll it into a ball. Place dough on a silicone baking mat or parchment lined cookie sheet so they don’t stick.
  2. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes, depending on your oven.
  3. Take out and let cool for 5 minutes, then transfer to a baker's rack that is over a sheet of parchment paper. (trust me you will thank me for that tip later)
  4. Once the cookies are cooled, mix together all the ingredients for the Maple syrup icing.
  5. Spoon the icing over the cookies. All the drips will land on the parchment paper so clean up is easy! Once the glaze has set, you can put them into a box or container.

These pumpkin cake cookies with maple pecan glaze are so yummy, and the make a perfect gift. I took them to a few friends and none of them could believe they were made from a cake mix!
