Pumpkin cookies are one of the best fall comfort foods. Sweet, spicy and full of pumpkin flavor, they're the best on rainy Saturday morning.

These cookies are soft, chewy and full of pumpkin spice goodness. To take them over the top, we're adding some cream cheese icing that is just so so delicious.


The perfect combination of flavors and fall spices. Make sure your melted butter has cooled to room temperature. 


These are the ingredients for the cream cheese frosting. Cream cheese and butter should be at room temperature. 

Cream Butter & Sugar


Add pumpkin and vanilla, mix well. 

Add the Dry

Add flour, spices, and baking soda. Mix this slowly until the dough just starts to come together. 


The dough should be stiff enough to roll in your hands. Use a 1" cookie scoop to get even amounts. 

Roll in sugar and pumpkin pie spice - then bake at 350F for 8-10 minutes. 

Make the Frosting

Cream the butter and cream cheese together. 

Add Powdered Sugar

Add the powdered sugar and mix. Add them vanilla, cinnamon, and milk. 

Desired Consistency

It should look something like this! Next, pipe the frosting onto the cooled cookies. 


Serve alongside a hot cup of coffee or a pumpkin spice latte!
