Pumpkin Pie Sugar Cookie Recipe

Pumpkin Pie Sugar Cookie Recipe

I love this Pumpkin Pie sugar cookie recipe – first because it’s just so cute, and second because it is pumpkin-themed without the pumpkin flavor!  While they look like little pumpkin pies, they taste like a regular yummy sugar cookies.  They’re perfect for a special treat for the kids on Thanksgiving!

For adults who may be more able to resist eating their dessert until the end of the meal, you can turn them into unique place cards.  Just use white icing to pipe the name of each guest onto a cookie and use it to adorn their place at the table.

  1. These are so cute! I love this idea. And my kids are not a fan of pumpkin pie, but I bet they would love these!

  2. I love this idea. I prefer cookies to pie so this recipe is great. Also, cookies are much easier to make. Thanks for this idea.

  3. Yummy, these look delish!

  4. What a cute idea! I would love to serve these at Thanksgiving.

  5. These are just about the cutest things ever! Love and I’m pinning!

    these are adorable! while i do like pumpkin flavored cookies, not many of the little ones in our family do. so like you said this would be a great treat for them at Thanksgiving, especially for the really little ones who can hold their own cookie but are still working on eating with a fork.

  7. Those are the cutest cookies I’ve ever seen. I’d have to get better at piping or mine wouldn’t look as great.

  8. How cute! I love sugar cookies, both making them and eating them! However, I haven’t been able to conquer decorating them to come out fun! These I can handle and the result is wonderful!! Great idea to use them as ‘place cards.’ Everyone likes something with his or her name on it!!

  9. Richard Hicks says:

    These are really neat. I am a pumpkin pie lover and want to try these cookies out!

  10. These cookies look great! I did a double take at pictures- they did look like little pumpkin pies! How clever! thanks for sharing!

  11. I like this idea. I think I may borrow it for Christmas at work and just switch it up to green and red colors. That’s another good thing about this idea, is it can be tweaked for different occasions. I’d been looking for that other little thing for work and I think this is it.

  12. Wow! that is such pretty!
