These cookies will truly melt in your mouth! They are incredibly decadent and guaranteed to please your guests this holiday season! 

Ingredients:

Cookies:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 3/4 cup butter, (softened at room temperature)

Frosting:

  • 6 oz cream cheese, (softened at room temperature)
  • 1/4 cup butter, (softened at room temperature)
  • 1 - 1.5 cups powdered sugar, (sweetened to taste *SEE NOTES BELOW)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Garnishment

  • ground cinnamon
  • granulated sugar

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • To a large mixing bowl or mixer, beat the butter with a handheld or counter mixer until it reaches a light, fluffy consistency.
  • Add the brown sugar and granulated sugar, egg, vanilla extract, and pumpkin puree. Mix until thoroughly combined.
  • To a separate mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and pumpkin pie spice.
  • Slowly add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients 1/4-1/2 cup at a time. Mix until it reaches a cake batter consistency.
  • Using a 2-tablespoon scoop (ice cream scoop, melon scooper, or cookie dough scoop), release the batter onto the baking sheets, making sure to  keep each cookie 2 inches apart.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the tops are firm. Transfer the cookies to wire racks to cool before icing.
  • While the first batch is baking, combine the ingredients for the frosting into a medium mixing bowl or stand mixer and beat until smooth.
  • Spread frosting over each cookie and sprinkle with a cinnamon sugar mixture (optional). Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
