Homemade Pumpkin Cookie Cups Recipe

Pumpkin is a true fall flavor, and it’s also a very versatile flavor. Here are the ingredients that you need to use to make these pumpkin cookie cups.


Here are the directions that you need to follow in order to complete this recipe.

reheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Then, grease a miniature muffin cups tin. 

2. Next, sift together flour, baking powder, salt, and 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg in a bowl. In a separate large mixing bowl, cream unsalted butter with sugar with an electric mixer until smooth and workable; beat in egg and milk. Set the mixer to low speed and gradually beat in flour mixture, beating just until the dough comes together.

3. Now, pinch off dough by the tablespoon, roll it into a ball, and place the balls into the prepared mini muffin cups.

4. Bake in the preheated oven until edges start to turn golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let stand for 1 minute. Use the back of a rounded teaspoon measure to press a small depression into the top of each cookie. Let the cookies cool for 5 minutes in pan before removing to finish cooling on a rack. It helps to give the cookies a little twist as you lift them out.

5. Beat cream cheese with 1 cup confectioners’ sugar in a bowl with an electric mixer until smooth. Slowly beat in pumpkin puree until thoroughly combined. Beat in remaining 2 3/4 cups confectioners’ sugar, a little at a time. Stir in cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, 1/4 teaspoon ginger, and a pinch of cloves. Spoon or pipe the pumpkin mixture into each cookie cup.
