Chocolate Glazed Pumpkin Cookies

The first time I saw the Chocolate Glazed Pumpkin Cookies in Martha Stewart’s Everyday Food, I knew it was a perfect way to use pumpkin puree.

Whether you have made the pumpkin puree yourself or you have your favorite canned pumpkin puree, this time of year is the perfect time to try these cookies….

Below I share the recipe but note that I did change the flour composition and used only cinnamon and nutmeg in lieu of pumpkin pie spice.  Please read the original if you wish to try the original recipe.

Ingredients (makes 3 1/2 dozen)
2 cups all-purpose flour 
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg 
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 can (15 ounces) pure pumpkin puree
4 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt; set aside.

2. Using an electric mixer, beat together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg; beat until smooth. With mixer on low speed, alternately add flour mixture in two parts and pumpkin puree in one, beginning and ending with flour mixture; mix just until combined (do not overmix).

3. Drop dough by heaping tablespoons onto two baking sheets, about 1 1/2 inches apart. Bake until puffed and edges are golden, 15 to 20 minutes, rotating sheets once during baking. Immediately transfer cookies to wire racks, and cool completely.

4. When cookies have cooled, set them (still on rack) over a baking sheet or waxed paper. Place chocolate in a medium heatproof bowl set over (not in) a saucepan of simmering water; stir until almost melted. Remove from heat; stir until completely melted. Pour chocolate into a resealable plastic bag. Snip off a corner with scissors or a knife to make an 1/8-inch hole; pipe chocolate over cookies.

5.  Allow cookies to rest until the chocolate is firm, about 20 minutes.
