This time of year, pumpkin-oatmeal cookies with creamy goat cheese frosting hit the seasonal spot! These drop cookies with their creamy topping are perfect paired with coffee, tea, or a tall glass of milk. Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
For the cookies:
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
In a bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and salt. Whisk together to combine.
In a separate bowl, add the brown sugar, butter, pumpkin, egg, orange zest, and juice. Use a mixer to blend the ingredients together until smooth.
A little at a time, add the flour mixture to the pumpkin mixture, and stir with a wooden spoon. Add the oats to the mixture, a little at a time, until combined.
Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto the baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake for 9-11 minutes.
Remove from the oven, then transfer the cookies to a cooling rack.
For the frosting:
Use a mixer to combine the cream cheese, goat cheese, and butter. Add the milk, then add the confectioners sugar, a little at a time, until you reach your desired consistency. Add a little more milk or confectioners sugar, as needed.
When the cookies are completely cool, add the frosting.
To store the cookies, refrigerate in a container with a lid.
This time of year, we are all looking for that perfect cookie recipe that will get Santa to leave a gift for even the naughtiest of people. These cookies might just be them. The simple, no fail base can be customized to whatever candies or chip combination you desire. I have made these for years and have never been disappointed.
