Are you hosting a Halloween party or Thanksgiving at your house, or maybe you are going to a party or need to provide cookies for your kids’ class? This recipe is the perfect solution because it yields between 8 and 9 dozen cookies…that’s about 100 cookies! And if you don’t need quite that many, just cut the recipe in half.
I took these to my daughter’s housewarming and they were a hit. And the Gr8 thing about this recipe is that you can make just plain pumpkin cookies or add in nuts or chocolate chips or raisins or…just about anything, how about some orange M&Ms? Don’t you just love options?
These cookies are cake-like, they won’t spread much, so you get this lovely morsel of soft, pumpkin-y, melt in your mouth deliciousness!
When they were first out of the oven I asked my official taste-tester for his opinion. Of course Vince liked them (it is a cookie fresh from the oven!) but he wasn’t over the moon about them. Vince continued watching football and I finished working on the cookies. Then I popped one into his mouth and his eyes grew wide! “What did you do to them?” He asked. Well, all I had done was finish them with the Maple Glaze. Apparently, that was the perfect touch.
In addition to being a Gr8 recipe for a crowd, the unglazed cookies can be frozen. Just add the Maple Glaze after defrosting.
Feel free to cut this recipe in half if you don't need so many cookies.
Unglazed cookies can be frozen for up to 2 months in a sealed container. Glaze once defrosted.
If you need to transport these, separate layers with sheets of waxed paper.
