Kathie’s Pumpkin Spice Cookies

Pumpkin Spice Cookies

Pumpkin Spice Cookies

Oh my gosh! Fabulous! This recipe comes from my friend Kathie, and it will not disappoint. Everyone, every single person who had one, told me it was the best pumpkin cookie they had ever had. I loved it. This recipe is simple yet oh so yummy. It’s definitely going into my holiday recipe must.

Cookie Ingredients:  Yields about 3 1/2 dozen

  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • DSC_16341/2 cup salted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Frosting Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup salted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 to 3 cups powdered sugar

Preheat your oven to 350 and line a couple of cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and salt. Set aside.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Beat in the pumpkin puree, egg and vanilla until creamy. Add the flour mixture, about 1/2 cup at a time and continue to beat until all ingredients are combined fully. Drop by the tablespoon on your cookie sheets, baked for 15-20 minutes. Cool cookies completely before icing.

In a small bowl cream together the butter and cream cheese. Stir in the vanilla and cinnamon. Slowly add the powdered sugar until it is thick and creamy. I added the powdered sugar half a cup at a time until I reached the consistency I wanted. You may not need the full 3 cups. Once iced, if you’re not serving them immediately, then cover them and refrigerate.  Add a nice hot cup of coffee and your set for a wonderful dessert.
