Gluten-Free Pumpkin Cookies

Why you'll love this recipe!

I love a good chocolate chip cookie, but these Gluten Free Pumpkin Cookies are a fall staple!!  They are melt-in-your-mouth soft, and have all of your favorite cozy, fall spices! I even added a little pumpkin frosting on top!  The cookie dough takes about 15 minutes to prep, and an hour to chill. (The hardest, but most important part.)

Baking Pumpkin Cookies

Press each dough ball into a flat disk about ¼ inch thick. (Don't flatten out too much.) They will not expand much in the oven while baking. Bake at 325 degrees for about 10-12 minutes.

Frosting

Add 3 tablespoons of powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon water, 1 tablespoon pumpkin puree, ¼ teaspoon pumpkin spice, and ¼ teaspoon cinnamon into a small bowl. Use a fork or whisk to combine.  Once the cookies have cooled you can add a small amount to the top of each cookie. Spread using the back of the spoon. It will take at least 5-10 minutes to dry completely.  You can use any powdered sugar, but I used Lakanto powdered sugar for this recipe!
