Pumpkin Cloud Cookies the perfect Thanksgiving treat.

Happy Thanksgiving friends!  Just wanted to pop in and share the formal recipe for our favorite Thanksgiving tradition, Pumpkin Cloud Cookies.-

<I’ll update the post with completed photos but I shared the basics on Instagram Stories yesterday and thought I’d had the entire recipe here for your enjoyment! My little gift to you from our family this Thanksgiving.</p>

They are light and fluffy, yet stuffed with sweetness of the chips and cranberry. The coating of chocolate could be omitted because they are that good, but I would advise against it. Chocolate makes everything better.

Pumpkin Cloud Cookies


  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup solid pack pumpkin puree
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour or CUP4CUP Gluten Free Flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoons orange zest
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 package chocolate almond bark or candy chocolate
  • 1/4 cup bittersweet chunks
  • Preheat the oven to 375. Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Fluffy is important!
  • Add the eggs, vanilla, and pumpkin and mix.
  • In a separate bowl, sift the dry ingredients together and then gradually mix the wet and dry ingredients together.
  • The finished dough is very gooey. I use a cookie scoop and drop them on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 11 minutes.

Slide cookies on sheet of parchment to cooling rack or counter. Once the cookies have completely cooled, melt your chocolate. I like to microwave it for about 45 seconds, take it out, stir it, and then go for another 45 seconds.

Using a spoon, top each cookie with a coating of chocolate. Allow chocolate to harden and store in air tight container.

I hope your family loves these as much as we do! They have been a favorite for about 10 years.

Happy Thanksgiving my sweet friends!!
