This month for the Secret Recipe Club I found these Pumpkin-Spice Latte Cookies along with a gold mine of other goodies! Read on to find out who’s blog I had this month!
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”. 😉 Be sure to hop over and check out everything she has to share!

- Add dry ingredients to pumpkin mixture and stir until incorporated.
- Drop by tablespoons on parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake 14 minutes at 350. Cookie will spring back when lightly touched.

- To make frosting: Melt butter in saucepan and cook just until butter begins to brown. Add coffee granules, milk, brown sugar and bring to a slow boil. Cook for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool completely.
