Master this recipe like a Pro/Expert with these helpful Tips: 🎓💡

KM’Tips :

  • To ensure tender and soft cookies, avoid overmixing the dough once you’ve added the flour mixture.
  • For a more intense pumpkin flavor, consider adding a dash of pumpkin pie spice to the cookie dough.
  • If the icing is too thick, add a little more milk, a teaspoon at a time, until you achieve the desired drizzling consistency.
  • To make the icing application easier and less messy, transfer it to a small plastic zip-top bag, snip off a tiny corner, and use it as a piping bag to drizzle over the cookies.

Substitutions and Variations:

  • Swap out the white sugar for brown sugar for a deeper, more caramel-like flavor.
  • Experiment with different spices like ginger or allspice to customize the flavor profile of the cookies.
  • Substitute the butter with an equal amount of coconut oil for a dairy-free option.
  • Instead of canned pumpkin puree, try using mashed sweet potatoes or butternut squash for a twist on the classic recipe.
  • For a nutty crunch, add a handful of chopped pecans or walnuts to the cookie dough.

Wanna Make a Healthier Version:

For those looking for a healthier twist, you can make a few adjustments to this recipe. Here are some suggestions :

To make these iced pumpkin cookies a bit healthier, consider the following substitutions and adjustments:

  • Use whole wheat pastry flour or a blend of whole wheat and all-purpose flour for added fiber and nutrients.
  • Reduce the amount of sugar in the cookie dough by using a natural sweetener like maple syrup or honey.
  • Replace the butter with mashed ripe avocado for a lower saturated fat content and added creaminess.
  • Opt for Greek yogurt instead of milk in the icing for a boost of protein and a tangy flavor.
  • Add a tablespoon of ground flaxseed or chia seeds to the dough for an omega-3 fatty acid and fiber boost.
