Pumpkin Cookies with Cream Cheese Icing

Happy Day 3 of Pumpkin Weekend!

These cookies are DEE-licious. They're a fluffy cake-like cookie, and they tend to get eaten up really quickly!

Recipe adapted from here (cookies) and here (icing).

2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla

1. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, & salt. Set aside.
2. In a mixer, beat the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add pumpkin, egg, and vanilla, and mix until smooth. Gradually add in dry ingredients and mix until combined.
3. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto a cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes.

1 8oz block cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup (half a stick) of butter, softened
3 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla

1. Beat cream cheese and butter together in a mixer until well blended.
2. Add in vanilla and stir. Add in powdered sugar one cup at a time, mixing until blended.
3. After cookies have cooled, use a knife or icing bag to spread/pipe the icing onto the cookies.

Ready for the oven!



I put the icing in a Ziploc and cut the corner of the bag to create a makeshift piping bag.
