We hope you’ve been enjoying the delights of fall and the events that Owings Mills has to offer. This week The Townes at Mill Run Blog recognizes that this is a good month to stay inside and hibernate when you don’t have to be out and about. What better way to stay inside than cozying up on your sofa with some delicious, warm cookies? October also happens to be Cookie Month, so this week we’re offering to you five cookie recipes that will melt your heart and your taste buds (in a good way) — and because pumpkin spice is in this month, we’re featuring a variety of pumpkin-based cookies.

Pumpkin-Bases Cookie Recipes from The Towns at Mill Run

Soft pumpkin sugar cookies with caramel cream cheese frosting

Just think of how much you love sugar cookies, cream cheese, and caramel, individually. Then imagine putting that all together for a cookie that perfectly complements itself and gives you the happiness of a successful new recipe. The potential is great with this cookie.

Pumpkin cheesecake cookies

The creamy center, soft cookie, and graham cracker coating will make you feel reminiscent of a cheesecake. The pumpkin flavoring is just enough to make you feel that you’re a part of the pumpkin craze. And the overall cookie just might make you feel like you’ve found a new fall staple!

Melt in your mouth pumpkin cookies with cream cheese frosting

Cream cheese frosting clearly can only add to a stellar pumpkin cookie, but this frosting just adds to the melt-in-your-mouth decadence of this recipe. Enjoy this recipe for a classic pumpkin cookie, moist and warm and thick and full of autumn love.

Cinnamon chip pumpkin cookies

The author of this recipe claims to have made the perfect pumpkin cookie that is not too cakey in texture and that maximizes the pumpkin flavoring without becoming too overpowering. This recipe is just a twist on that, with cinnamon instead of chocolate chips and coated in cinnamon sugar. It’s definitely worth trying if you love easy mixing and lots of flavor!

Flourless pumpkin oatmeal raisin cookies

If you need a healthy reprieve from all those cookies you’ve been making this month, this recipe is a great option. If you use gluten-free oats, you can even make the cookies completely gluten-free! Enjoy the pumpkin and cinnamon flavor of these cookies, complemented with that unique raisin taste, while appreciating the texture of the oats and how well they’re rolled into a yummy cookie.

We hope you have a fun time baking and an even more fun time enjoying the fruits of your labor! Happy baking!
