Servings: 3 dozen cookies


  • For the Cookies:
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup pure pumpkin puree not pumpkin pie filling
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 1/4 cups old-fashioned oats
  • For the Maple Glaze:
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 1/3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon maple extract or flavoring
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons milk


  • 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.
  • 2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice, and salt. Set aside.
  • 3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla extract. Beat until combined. Beat in the pumpkin and maple syrup until smooth. Gradually add flour mixture and mix until ingredients are incorporated. Stir in the oats.
  • 4. Drop cookie dough by rounded tablespoons onto prepared baking sheet. Bake cookies for 12 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
  • 5. While the cookies are cooling, make the glaze. In a medium bowl, whisk together melted butter, powdered sugar, maple syrup, maple extract, vanilla extract, and milk. You may need to add a little more milk if the glaze is too thick. Whisk until smooth.
  • 6. Drizzle maple glaze over cooled cookies. Let sit until glaze hardens. Serve and enjoy!
