  • 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger it called for cloves I didn't have any so I used ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 1 1/2 cups sucanat/sugar
  • 1 cup fresh or canned pumpkin puree
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Glaze:
  • 2 cups confectioner sugar
  • 3 tablespoons milk more if needed
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. In a medium bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and salt. Set aside.
  2. In another bowl cream the butter and the sucanat/sugar.

  3. Add pumpkin, egg, and vanilla. Mix.

  4. Slowly include all the flour mixture.

  5. Drop by tablespoon size onto a lined cookie sheet.

  6. Baked in a preheated 350 F degree oven for 15 - 18 minutes.

  7. After they cooled we put them all on one cookie sheet to drizzle on the glaze.


  1. In a small bowl mix the confectioner sugar, melted butter, vanilla extract, and milk. Add as much milk as you need to get to the right consistency to drizzle.

  2. The icing hardens on the cookies so you can stack them to store. Keep in a closed container for several days.
