These Pumpkin Gingerbread Cookies Could Possibly Be the Best in the World!

Pumpkin Gingerbread Cookies by Micah Trainor, Hearthy Chef,  Culinary Nutrition GBC

This recipe is a fun twist on a classic cookie. I’m a huge fan of soft and bold gingerbread cookies with lots of spice, so for this recipe I wanted to use Hearthy Foods pumpkin flour to incorporate that fan favorite fall and winter flavor of pumpkin into these cookies. 

I have made these cookies with all purpose flour, gluten free flour and Hearthy Food flours and they have all turned out great! If you just want a hint of pumpkin and not such a strong flavor, feel free to mix different flours together to achieve your desired taste. 

Recipe Tips: 

  1. This dough needs to chill for a minimum of 2 hours, maximum of 3 days, but can also be frozen raw. 
  2. The thinner you roll out your cookies, the crisper they will be. I like mine on the softer side so I roll it out about ½ an inch. 
  3. This icing doesn’t harden 100%, so if these cookies need to be stacked I would suggest using cookie icing. 
  4. You can substitute the butter with dairy free butter if need be, as long as it’s soft!
