Our yummy maple pumpkin cookies are soft, chewy and ridiculously delicious!

You may want to shape your pumpkin cookies a bit before baking, as they don’t spread very much. Just wet your fingers with a little water then press down on the dough.

When you’re making your icing, if it’s too thick, add a bit more syrup. If it’s too thin, just add powdered sugar in small increments until you reach the desired consistency.

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

maple icing

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 4 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 cups powdered sugar, sifted


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line baking sheets with parchment paper. Sift flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, salt and nutmeg into a large bowl then set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, cream both sugars, butter and oil together. Add pumpkin purée, eggs and vanilla to the sugar mixture, stirring thoroughly to combine.
  • Combine all wet and dry ingredients together then mix until well incorporated. Using a spoon or small cookie scoop, drop heaping tablespoons of dough approximately 3" apart onto baking sheets. Moisten fingertips with a little bit of water then flatten dough to approximately ½" thickness.
  • Bake 10–12 minutes, remove from oven when centers of the cookies are firm to the touch then allow cookies to cool completely on a cooling rack.
  • Prepare icing by whisking butter, vanilla, maple syrup and powdered sugar. If icing is on the thin side, add a little bit of powdered sugar to thicken it. Ice cookies after they have completely cooled and enjoy!


The dough will be more like a batter, making it a seriously moist and chewy cookie!
