How To Make Chocolate-Glazed Pumpkin Cookies

The soft texture of these pumpkin cookies is reminiscent of cake. The chocolate glaze adds some very welcome bittersweet notes.

Preparation: 30 minutes
Cooking: 20 minutes
Rest and Cool Time: 40 minutes
Total: 1 hour 30 minutes



  • 2cupsall purpose flour
  • ½tspbaking soda
  • ½tspbaking powder
  • ½tsppumpkin pie spice
  • ¼tspsalt
  • ½cupunsalted butter
  • 1cupsugar
  • 1large egg
  • 1canpure pumpkin puree
  • 4ozsemisweet chocolate


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, pumpkin-pie spice, and salt; set aside.

  2. Using an electric mixer, beat together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg; beat until smooth.

  3. With mixer on low speed, alternately add flour mixture in two parts and pumpkin puree in one, beginning and ending with flour mixture; mix just until combined (do not overmix).

  4. Drop dough by heaping tablespoons onto two baking sheets, about 1½ inches apart. Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes until puffed and edges are golden, rotating sheets once during baking. Immediately transfer cookies to wire racks, and cool completely.

  5. When cookies have cooled, set them (still on rack) over a baking sheet or waxed paper. Place chocolate in a medium heatproof bowl set over (not in) a saucepan of simmering water; stir until almost melted.

  6. Remove from heat; stir until completely melted. Pour chocolate into a resealable plastic bag. Snip off a corner with scissors or a knife to make a ⅛-inch hole; pipe chocolate over cookies. Refrigerate until chocolate is firm.
