In a mixer cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and pumpkin and mix well. Sift flour, baking powder, salt and spices together and fold into cookie batter. Mix until well blended. At this point you can add the nuts if you like. Drop a spoonful of the cookie batter onto a cookie sheet. Bake in a 350 degree oven for approximately 15 minutes. Here are the Pumpkin Spice Cookies straight out of the oven. Super cake-y and pumpkin-y. Mmmm … mmm … good. Allow the cookies to completely cool.
This recipe made 3 dozen cookies.
Beat cream cheese, butter and vanilla in a mixer until blended. Add powered sugar a cup at a time and continue to mix until sugar is incorporated. Finally, add cinnamon. Spread over the top of the cookies and Enjoy!
