I enjoy every part of these pumpkin spice cookies – the making (they smell so good), the baking (now my house smells good), and the eating. They’re the best fall cookies ever.
Pumpkin Spice Cookies
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, I love fall. It’s the end of summer (which is sad) but it’s time for all those fun things that only happen when cool breezes and leaves are rustling around the ankles. Fall here in the Pacific Northwest is a time of long walks, wet mornings, and very, very strong breezes.
And of course, one of my favorite things about fall: pumpkin spice.
Oh, the smell is captivating, isn’t it? I could have something baking with that smell all year long. These cookies are simple to mix up, bake, and I’m sharing an easy flood icing recipe for beginners. If you’re ready to start making some fall cookies, let’s get started.

Tips to Make Fall Cookies
- Because these are an easy cookie to bake up, mix and bake the cookies a day before decorating them. They will hold together very well.
- If you opt to make, bake, and decorate the same day, be sure the cookies have cooled completely before frosting.
- Decorating is a personal thing so let your creative juices flow. Don’t feel constrained by my little vines if you want Jack-o-Lantern pumpkin spice cookies. Flood icing is so easy, you can pretty much do anything.
- I didn’t think of it until later, but these pumpkin cookies would look cute with a little leaf, right there under the stem.
