I love my PSL (Pumpkin Spice Latte) and when I saw these cookies on Jessie’s blog Jessie Weaver, The Vanderbilt Wife, my mind was immediately made up.  Who can’t resist a soft pumpkin cookie with a fudgy like topping?  Not me!  I made these up last Sunday and after we consumed a couple I put them in my freezer.  We will have family visiting soon and I will be sharing these with them!

I did make a few changes (sorry Jessie’s hubby!) and added some nutmeg, browned my butter for the frosting, then sprinkled a little more freshly grated nutmeg on top of the cookies.  Growing up I was not a nutmeg fan, but now I can’t think of a pumpkin cookie without adding some freshly ground nutmeg!
I really enjoyed having Jessie’s blog this month.  I’ve followed her for quite some time now and she has some great recipes out there as well as some great stories to go along.  I love how she says her family recipes are “someone’s family recipe”.  ๐Ÿ˜‰  Be sure to hop over and check out everything she has to share!

    I'm still not sure I'm ready for all-out fall and pumpkin, but these certainly look great! I think I'm not ready for fall/cold because it's really been such a mild summer here. Wait! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    These look amazing! I can't handle Pumpkin Spice Lattes because they are just too much sugar in the mornings, so a dessert version in a cookie would be so perfect for me! :)

    Dannnnng girrrrrl these sound so amazing! I had never had a pumpkin cookie until Madison made some a couple years ago. I was never really a fan of pumpkin, but she converted me with those cookies! I love the topping on these and the cookies look so soft and chewy just the way I like 'em! Thanks for sharing!!

  4. says

    These cookies look so soft and thick! :) I have to admit that I am not one of these people who gets all crazy when the PSL's show up once again at Starbucks, but I adore pumpkin desserts of any kind!

  5. says

    Nothing like a little pumpkin spice latte to get you in the mood for fall! I am looking forward to the fall flavors…but I am not quite ready to give up the summer ones yet! Your cookies look delicious!

    Shelby, I'm more than ready for PSL everything it is like being wrapped in a blanket on a chilling morning.
    Once the pumpkin drinks and food start showing up I sink into my Fall laid back mood.
