Pumpkin Spice Cookies with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting



Pumpkin Spice Ingredients

Maple Cream Cheese Frosting Ingredients


  1. First, preheat the oven to 375ยบ & line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl cream 1 cup butter, 1 cup brown sugar, & 1 cup white sugar. Then with a spoon mix in the 1 can of pure pumpkin & 2 teaspoons vanilla.
  3. Sift 5 cups flour, 2 teaspoons baking soda, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, 1/2 teaspoon all spice, & 2 pinches of salt into the pumpkin mixture & stir until combined. (*2)
  4. Scoop the pumpkin spice cookie dough onto your baking sheet using a medium – 1/8 cup – cookie scoop & leave 1-2 inches between each cookie for spreading. Use your fingers press down on the top of each cookie so that the cookie dough is flat & evenly distributed. (*3)
  5. Bake the cookies for 10-15 minutes until lightly golden.
  6. Once baked, remove the cookies from the oven & let cool. If you weren’t able to bake all of the cookies at once, let the baking sheet cool before scooping more batter onto the sheet.
  7. While your cookies are cooling make the Maple Cream Cheese Frosting. (*3)
  8. In a medium sized bowl blend together the butter & the cream cheese. Then slowly blend in 2 cups of powdered sugar by adding 1/2 cup at a time to the butter/cream cheese. Continue to blend until light fluffy – I like to blend mine for at least 5-10 minutes to ensure extra fluffiness! Then blend in 1 teaspoon vanilla & 1 & 1/2 teaspoon maple extract until combined. If need be add more powdered sugar, 1/4 cup at a time, until you are happy with the consistency. (*4)
  9. Once your cookies are completely cool frost your cookies using a spatula & enjoy! (*5)
