Easy Pumpkin Spice Cookies

To make these pumpkin spice cookies, you only need a handful of ingredients including canned 100% pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, a yellow cake mix, 1 egg, oil, and quick oats.

Combined, all these ingredients make an extremely flavorful and delicious cookie, and the cake mix, pumpkin, and quick oats create the most soft and chewy cookie. Even without the glaze on top these cookies are super yummy and somewhat addicting. 

But because we’re all about making things look pretty and taste extra amazing, the cinnamon maple glaze takes it over the top! The maple, vanilla, and cinnamon all really bring out the flavors in the cookie and perfectly complement the pumpkin. Plus – it looks super pretty and would look great in your Thanksgiving dessert line-up.

Helpful Tips for Making Cake Mix Pumpkin Spice Cookies

  • Don’t overmix the batter. We’ve talked about this before on the blog, but overmixing any batter ends up making it dry. When mixing the wet ingredients in with the dry, fold it together until just combined.
  • Use a cookie scoop in lieu of spoons. Years ago I would use spoons to drop the batter onto my cookie sheet, and it was SO time consuming, messy, and the cookies ended up being all different sizes. This cookie scoop set is super affordable and has saved a ton of time/mess. 
  • Spray the bottom of a glass cup with non-stick spray and gently press on the top of each cookie before baking. This will help the cookie bake more evenly and creates a perfect round shape. 
  • Use a wire rack with a parchment-lined cookie sheet underneath for glazing your cookies. This will catch any extra glaze and then you can throw the parchment paper away for easy clean-up. 
  • If you foresee having leftover cookies, don’t glaze them until you are ready to eat. These cookies stay fresh for several days in an airtight container and can easily be glazed 30 minutes to an hour before you are ready to eat.

Ingredients

Scale

Pumpkin Spice Cookies

  • 1 package yellow cake mix
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 2 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 15 oz can 100% pure pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp canola or vegetable oil

Cinnamon Maple Glaze Icing

  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp milk

  • Using a medium cookie scoop drop batter onto parchment paper lined baking sheets. Flatten the tops of each with the bottom of a glass cup that has been sprayed with non-stick spray.

  • Place on wire racks to fully cool.
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together powdered sugar, cinnamon, vanilla extract, milk, and maple syrup until smooth. If needed, add additional tablespoons of milk until a thin glaze consistency is reached.
  • Dip the tops of each cookie into glaze and place back on wire rack until glaze has set.

Notes

  • Store any leftover cookies in a single layer in an airtight container, after fully cool and icing has set. If desired, you can also wait to glaze cookies until ready to eat.
