Easy Pumpkin Spice Cookies are made with a yellow cake mix, quick oats, pumpkin pie spice, canned pumpkin puree, and topped with a delicious cinnamon maple glaze icing. These pumpkin spice cookies are soft, flavorful, and delicious! 



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
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the yellow cake mix, quick cooking oats, and pumpkin pie spice. In a smaller mixing bowl, combine pumpkin, egg, and oil, and stir until smooth. Add wet ingredients into dry ingredients until just combined.
  • 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.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes or until the edges are a light golden brown.
  • 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.


  • 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.
