Lofthouse Copycat Pumpkin Spice Cookies

Soo, the pumpkin baking has officially started! And these gems should not be missed!

You know those amazing Lofthouse cookies that everyone loves?  The ones with the bright colored frosting and sprinkles?!

Well, here is a pumpkin spice version... and they are absolutely amazing!


What you need:
- 1/2 cup softened butter
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
 - 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 large eggs
- 4 cups all purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

How to:
1. In a large bowl mix together the butter, oil, pumpkin, sugars, vanilla and eggs, until incorporated and smooth.  Slowly mix in all the dry ingredients.
2. Roll the dough into balls and place on a lined cookie sheet.
3. Dip the bottom of a glass in a bowl of sugar, and flatten the cookies to your desired thickness.
4. Bake for 9ish minutes at 350 degrees.


Once the cookies are fully cooled, top with a pumpkin spice glaze.

What you need:
- 3 cups powdered sugar
- 4 tablespoons water
- 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Mix together all of the ingredients, top the cookies with the frosting, and let the frosting set before serving.

  4. I've never heard of Lofthouse cookies, but these look delicious! I'm not a big pumpkin fan so I would probably do a cinnamon or vanilla or something version, but they look like the perfect cookie consistency!
