Crumbl Copycat Pumpkin Pie Cookies

These Crumbl Copycat Pumpkin Pie Cookies are a delicious twist on a favorite Thanksgiving dessert!

Pumpkin Pie Cookies

Thanksgiving is all about sharing great food with the ones you love. One of my favorite Thanksgiving foods is pumpkin pie, and this recipe is basically a fun way to enjoy this favorite dessert in cookie form. Inspired by Crumbl, these Pumpkin Pie Cookies have a delicious sugar cookie crust and are topped with a delicious pumpkin pie mousse topping. These cookies are easy to make, and would be a fun activity to do with the kids. I'm sure they will be a hit at any autumn or Thanksgiving gathering!

Pumpkin Pie Cookies

Use a hand mixer or stand mixer and a mixing bowl to combine the ingredients to make the cookie dough. Once mixed, the dough should be quite soft and light in color. If it seems too sticky, you can add a little bit of flour to the mixture.

Split the dough up into 9 equally-sized pieces. Roll the dough pieces into balls, and then slightly flatten them out onto a baking sheet lined with silicone mats or parchment paper.

Press the bottom of a ¼ cup measuring cup into the center of each cookie. This will leave a perfectly-sized impression to make it possible to fill the cookie after baking!

Bake the cookies for 9 minutes. Do NOT overbake! Let them cool for 15-20 minutes, and then move cookies to a wire rack to finish cooling.

While the cookies are baking and cooling, mix up the pumpkin pie filling and whipped cream topping. Pour the filling and topping mixtures into piping bags.

Pipe the pumpkin pie filling into the center of each cookie. Gently tap the cookies or the wire rack on the counter top to allow the filling to settle evenly and flatten out.

IMPORTANT: when making the cookie filling recipe, make sure to use pumpkin puree, and NOT pumpkin pie filling!!

With the whipped topping in a piping bag fitted with a large star decorating tip, pipe a dollop on top of each cookie. Not only does this add extra sweetness to the cookie, but it also makes it look like a miniature pumpkin pie!
