Soft pumpkin cookies topped with rich cream cheese frosting! Is your mouthwatering? These cream cheese frosted pumpkin cookies are a must have fall cookie!
I was asked yesterday if there is a pumpkin cookie recipe on my website. While, yes, my Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe is there, I have totally forgotten to post cream cheese frosted pumpkin cookies. I know! I can’t believe it either! Definitely something that needed to be fixed ASAP! So here it is! My cream cheese frosted pumpkin cookie recipe! These are so, so, so good. I think I had forgotten to post this recipe because I have not made these yet this fall simply because this is one cookie I can eat until I’m sick. Literally. I’m am lacking in self control over these!
Mix up the pumpkin cookie dough according to the recipe instructions. Remember that pumpkin cookie dough is much stickier that your average cookie dough. So don’t add extra flour to make it less sticky or you will end up will really dry cookies. Bake the cookies at 350 for 12 minutes. They will be slightly browned. Cool on a cooling rack.
After the cookies are cooled completely, mix up the cream cheese frosting. Frost each pumpkin cookie. Store these cookies in the fridge.
