This giant gluten free pumpkin cookie is a delicious fun treat. This pumpkin cookie recipe bakes in a cast iron skillet and is perfect for snacking!
Fall is almost here and I have been missing pumpkin recipes. Do you ever wonder why pumpkin recipes aren’t really made year round?
It is time to break out all of your kitchen supplies and get ready to have some fun. Tonight we are starting dinner with dessert first. All you need is a cast iron skillet to make this easy gluten free dessert cookie in.
The kids are staring at me waiting for me to finish this post so they can each grab a slice of this gluten free pumpkin cookie. They haven’t had pumpkin anything in quite a while and I think I am testing their patience!
The star ingredient of this cookie is the pumpkin. I like to use an organic brand because of its creamy texture, but other brands work just as well. I would not use a baked pumpkin in this recipe because the pulp is very thick, which would make your cookie very dense.
This recipe also has plenty of pumpkin spice, which makes the best pumpkin spice cookies! These pumpkin cookies are soft, and they do not get crispy because the fresh pumpkin keeps them so moist.
How about this giant pumpkin skillet cookie? Pumpkin just screams autumn to me and I knew it would be the perfect base for my cookie in a cast iron skillet recipe. You can decorate this cookie any way you like.
Top with icing, caramel, ice cream, or all of the above! I really love making recipes in my cast iron skillet. I can mix everything up, pour it into the skillet, and put the skillet right in the oven to bake.
I considered making a graveyard scene on top of this cookie, but my kids are not waiting around for me to get fancy today. If you make and decorate your gluten free pumpkin cookie, send me a picture and I will include it in this post!
Don’t you want to just grab a fork?
