Pumpkin Spice Cookies Recipe

I love this time of year. You can find all kinds of tasty pumpkin treats like bars, cookies, pies, cakes, cupcakes, bread and ice cream. YUMMY! Now I am hungry! Every year I look forward to baking up a batch of pumpkin flavored cookies and today's recipe is courtesy of Cookina.

Pumpkin Spice Cookies Recipe

1 package of cream cheese (8 ounces)
1 ½ cups packed brown sugar
½ cup sugar
2 eggs
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 ½ teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking powder


2 cups confectioners' sugar
¼ cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 -3 tablespoons boiling water
2 cups chopped pecans (optional)

In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and sugars until smooth and mixed. Add eggs (one at a time) mixing well after each. Beat in pumpkin and vanilla. Combine dry ingredients; gradually add to pumpkin mixture and mix well. Place your COOKINA Cuisine on your cooking sheet and drop rounded teaspoons of batter about two inches apart. Bake at 350 degress for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. For frosting, in a small bowl, combine the confectioners' sugar, butter, vanilla and enough water to achieve frosting consistency. Frost cookies (once they have cooled) and sprinkle pecans if desired.

There are a lot of pumpkin recipes, but for me when you add a frosting of cream cheese and pecans it can not be improved. This will be delicious.
