Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Ingredients for cookies:
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. cloves
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup canned pumpkin puree
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Cream Cheese Frosting:
1, 8oz. bar of cream cheese
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 tablespoon milk (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and salt; set aside. In medium bowl, cream together butter, sugar. Add pumpkin, egg, and vanilla; beat until creamy. Mix in dry ingredients. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto cookie sheet, flatten slightly. Bake 15-20 minutes. Remove to cooling rack. For icing, beat together cream cheese and butter. Add powdered sugar and vanilla. Add milk to thin icing if necessary. Spread icing on cookies after they are cooled. Store in refrigerator because of cream cheese icing. EnJOY!


  1. These look yummy! Maybe I'll try a gluten-free version of them. I'm going to do a gluten-free version of your ultimate chocolate chip cookies this week - I hope it turns out. I made the 'real' recipe a couple of weeks ago for Andy and the kids that can have gluten, and they were all "these are SO good!" :)

  2. looks great - maybe i'll make a batch for the upcoming thanksgiving party at school for the kiddos - they always ask for something with pumpkin that kids will eat.

  3. I make a similar cookie but add chocolate chips and minus the frosting! They are yummy!-nena

  4. these cookies look ever so yummmy.. can I have a bite to taste?? PLEASE.
