Description

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.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE COOKIES:
  • 2-½ cups All Purpose Baking Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoons Ground Nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoons Ground Ginger
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt
  • 1-½ cup Packed Brown Sugar
  • ½ cups Butter, Softened
  • 1 cup Pureed Pumpkin (not Pumpkin Pie Filling)
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 1 Tablespoon Orange Zest
  • 3 Tablespoons Orange Juice
  • 2 cups Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
  • FOR THE FROSTING:
  • 4 ounces, fluid Cream Cheese, Softened
  • 4 ounces, fluid Mild Goat Cheese
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter, Softened
  • 2 Tablespoons Milk, Or More As Needed
  • 1 cup Confectioners Sugar, Or More As Needed

Preparation

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.
