PRO TIP: Cooking on wire racks allows for air to circulate around the whole cookie, allowing them to cool faster and more evenly.

Questions you might have about how to make pumpkin cookies:

Can I use brown sugar instead of granulated sugar on top? You sure can! It will give them a slight molasses flavor.

Can I use frosting instead of a sugar topping? You are after my own heart. Frost away. I would suggest a nice cream cheese frosting.

How do I store these sugar cookies? Store at room temperature in an airtight container.
