If you’ve never had chocolate and pumpkin together you’re missing out! It’s really a delicious combination in these iced chocolate pumpkin spice cookies. Add the vanilla glaze and this cookie is a true winner!

Iced pumpkin chocolate chip cookies are a not too sweet cake like cookie.

The first time I had the pumpkin chocolate combination was in this favorite quick bread recipe for chocolate chip pumpkin bread. Then I tried with glazed pumpkin chocolate chip scones and chocolate truffle pumpkin pound cake. More success so a cookie was the next step.

Start with great ingredients to make a great cookie.

You know I love using the best ingredients and for these cookies I started with pumpkin pie spice and vanilla extract from Adams Extracts. I always get excellent results when I use products from Adams. They also make a clear vanilla extract perfect for vanilla buttercream.

This is a cake cookie. The chocolate chips give the texture a bit of a snap and a touch of sweet. The glaze adds another layer of flavor but doesn’t add much sweetness. These cookies didn’t last long around my house. The recipe makes enough to share too.
