Frosted Pumpkin Spice Cookies

A few weeks ago I made a bunch of pumpkin treats for the kids in Chase's class to sample.  These cookies were by far the hit.  They are soft and fluffy and the cinnamon cream cheese frosting puts them over the top. 

Frosted Pumpkin Spice Cookies
Recipe from The Baker Chick
-2 1/2 cups flour (12.5 oz)
-1 teaspoon baking powder
-1 teaspoon baking soda 
-2 teaspoons cinnamon
-1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
-1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
-1/2 teaspoon salt
-1/2 cup butter (1 stick), softened
-1 1/2 cups white sugar
-1 cup canned pumpkin puree
-1 egg
-2 teaspoons vanilla

For the Frosting:
-1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
-1/2 cup cream cheese, softened
-2-3 cups powdered sugar
-1 teaspoon vanilla
-1 teaspoon cinnamon

 Preheat the  oven to 350 degrees. Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ground cloves, and salt. Set aside.

With an electric mixer cream together the 1/2 cup of butter and white sugar. Add pumpkin, egg, and 1 teaspoon vanilla and beat until creamy. Mix in dry ingredients. 
Drop Tablespoon-sized scoops of cookie dough on a baking sheet and flatten slightly.

Bake 15 to 20 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack before frosting.

To make frosting- Cream butter and cream cheese together. Slowly add powdered sugar and mix with an electric mixer until thick and creamy. Add vanilla and cinnamon.  Pipe on top of cooled cookies using a large round tip. Store in the refrigerator.
Pin It!
