Kelly’s Pumpkin Cookies

Big thanks go out to Kelly Martino for sharing this yummy pumpkin cookie recipe with us.  We are told that it’s a good idea to double the recipe because they are absolutely delicious (although not figure friendly)!


  • 1 cup shortening
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup pumpkin

Cream all three above together in a mixer then add:

  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp salt

Place a good size spoonfuls on a baking sheet and cook 10-12 min at 375 degrees.


  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 4 tsp milk
  • ½ cup brown sugar

Cook in saucepan over low heat, once all ingredients are melted, let cool then add:

  • ¾ tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar (add as much as needed to stiffen)

Drizzle the frosting on the cooled cookies.
