Pumpkin Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 10 min./batch + cooling
These cookies are a hit here. I use 1 tsp of pumpkin spice 1/2 tsp of cinnamon. This last time i used a while can of pumpkin. For the frosting i use only 1 cup of confectioners sugar. I love the taste of a more cream cheese taste!! So good. And i don't add any nuts
These cookies are very cake like, moist and tender. I would definitely add more of the spices. I added lemon and spices to the frosting. I froze them to take to a a carry in dinner thawing a bit ahead of time to help them be more sturdy. Rather like pumpkin pie in a cookie! Yum!.
I made these cookies with 1 cup of fresh pumpkin. I agree that the could use more od the seasonings but I added dried cranberries instead of walnuts. In addition I added pumpkin spice to the cream cheese icing. I took these to work and they were a big hit. This recipe is a keeper.
Does not give size can of pumpkin. One person said they used rest of pumpkin for something else.
I just made these and love it but I looked at the recipe and knew they were under seasoned. So just like for pumpkin pie I used 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon 1/2 tsp ginger and 1/4 tsp cloves and a heavy hand with the vanilla in the cookies and frosting. I made a double batch but I give away a lot. It wasn’t until I was almost done frosting them that light went on and that these make great sandwich cookies almost like a pumpkin woopie pie and so much easier to transport that way. Also these don’t spread much so you can load up your baking sheet and I also used my smallest scoop which worked great. These are so good and my husband and the basset hounds we’re looking for snacks, lol.
I made these intend8nt to give to a friend for her birthday. What a waste of time and money. They are bland to the 10th power. I threw them all away. Don't waste your time??
Not happy with these at all. I feel like I just wasted money and time because I’m making a different recipe to bring to the event I’m making cookies for. They tasted too bland to be used in a cookie contest. Even after I added some more sugar and cinnamon. Im definitely not making these again.
I followed the ingredients and found the flavor of the cookie very bland. I wish I had reviews of people who increased the cinnamon to 2 teaspoons. I wonder if the pumpkin pie spice seasoning would give even more flavor. Frosting was great.
What kind of pumpkin stuff do you use? Pumpkin pie ready, or just regular pumpkin in the can
I agree with Rita ... I used 2 tsp. Of cinnamon! They are the best pumpkin cookies I’ve ever had!
