Awww. What can I say? Pumpkin Cookies + Cream Cheese Frosting = Fall Bliss.

These cookies are scrumptious!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Butter
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 1 cup Pumpkin
  • 2 cups Flour
  • ½ teaspoons Pumpkin Spice
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ½ teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • _____
  • FROSTING INGREDIENTS:
  • 8 ounces, weight Cream Cheese
  • ½ cups Unsalted Butter, Room Temperature
  • 4 cups Sifted Powdered Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract

Preparation

Mix sugar, butter and egg. Add pumpkin; mix well.

Sift dry ingredients. Add dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture and beat well.

Using a small rounded cookie scoop, drop cookie dough onto baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for about 9 to 10 minutes.

Frosting:

In the bowl of a tabletop mixer fitted with a flat beater, cream together the cream cheese and butter, scraping down the sides of the bowl and beater twice, until fluffy.

Add the powdered sugar, first mixing on low speed,
then increasing the speed to high. Beat until light and fluffy, again scraping down the sides of the bowl and beater twice.

Blend in the vanilla. The icing should be smooth and spreadable. If it is too thick, add a wee bit of milk.

Spread on top of cooled pumpkin cookies. Enjoy!

OMG These woke everyone in my house! The smell..ooooooooh baby! These are really moist and taste soooooooooooo yummy. I only worry about how to transport them because they are so moist that you really cant stack them. I suppose you could but they wouldnt look as pretty. I just made them so maybe after the cream cheese frosting (that was soooooooooooo good) hardens a bit it may be ok.
thanks for the recipe!

I love these cookies! Today was the first I tried the recipe. My husband loves pumpkin cookies with an icing so even though it is July I made them anyway! They are moist and light! I would definitely make these again!

The cookies are perfectly soft and chewy. I went ahead and browned the butter before mixing it in with the cream cheese for the frosting with delicious results. These cookies are very addictive!
