Pumpkin Spice Cookie

 I don't know about you, but I am always looking for an amazing cookie recipe.  It doesn't come along too often.  Most of the time I can take them or leave them, but once in awhile a cookie recipe comes along that you want to make again, and again, and again.  Here it is.......

Pumpkin Spice Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting

2 cups flour
1 t baking powder
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t nutmeg
1/4 t ground cloves
1/4 t allspice
1/2 cup butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 cup pumpkin
1 t vanilla

Grease a cookie sheet.  Stir together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, soda, and nutmeg.  In a mixer bowl beat butter for 30 seconds, add brown sugar and beat until fluffy.  Add egg, pumpkin, and vanilla, beat well.  Add dry ingredients to pumpkin mixture til well blended.  Drop from teaspoons 2 inches apart onto greased cookie sheet.  Bake in a 375 degree oven for 8-10 mins.

Cream Cheese Frosting

3 oz. cream cheese
1/4 cup butter
1 t vanilla
add powdered sugar one cup at a time, beating in between, until reaching desired consistency

Add frosting when served.  Do not frost cookies before.  Keep frosting refrigerated.

This recipe will be a hit for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.

Thanks to Estelle Hodges for this amazing recipe.
