There is no denying that the Pillsbury Pumpkin Sugar Cookies are the most cozy and nostalgic reminder that autumn is here or in this case, right around the corner. As a kid, I remember my sisters and I ObSESSING over the new designs for each season of the Pillsbury Sugar Cookies. The pumpkins, and any Christmas design was always my favorite.
I have the most delicious Copycat Pillsbury Pumpkin Sugar Cookies Recipe. For the sake of this recipe, I wanted to keep it not only extremely easy and simple, but nostalgic. So I used the store bought version. I promise you that my copycat version tastes JUST like the classic ones you remember eating raw as a kid because you just couldn’t wait for the 10 minutes they needed in the oven.
More than anything with this recipe, I wanted all of you with crazy busy lives to have a recipe that is so fun and easy but is also a total show stopper at your events. By all means please feel free to use a homemade cupcake recipe like my Chocolate Cake Recipe. Or maybe a pumpkin cake recipe to go along with the theme. Regardless of what recipe or boxed mix you go with, these cupcakes will be so fun, festive, and nostalgic to everyone that has the pleasure of enjoying them.
Layering Pillsbury Pumpkin Sugar Cookie Cupcakes
The layers of this cupcake are super simple. Basically we want the bottom layer of the cupcake to have that soft, buttery, delicious Pillsbury Pumpkin Cookie. In order to get the sugar cookie to spread just enough to cover the bottom of the cupcake pan and bake perfectly with the cupcake is to bake them by themselves first. They only need to bake for 5-7 minutes at the bottom of the cupcake tins before scooping on the cupcake batter. Once the cupcakes bake we let them cool completely before decorating.
Decorating Pillsbury Pumpkin Sugar Cookies
The decorating portion of any recipe is typically my favorite. I will love the baking process through and through but there is something about watching everything you worked so hard on come together into a beautiful end result that is even better than you imagined.
I used a vanilla buttercream dyed orange to top my cupcakes. I used a large star tip to add a nice touch underneath the topped Pillsbury cookie. Once I piped on my buttercream I topped each one with a fully cooled Pumpkin Sugar Cookie. Feel free to add your won touch of festive sprinkles or your preferred color of buttercream.
