Monday Recipe Mission: Pumpkin Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting

Well, it’s FALL and what would be better than a great fall recipe!

Monday’s Recipe Mission:

Pumpkin Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting
They are so moist and Umm, Umm Good!!!!

I played around with a few recipes and this is what I found was best.

Ingredients: (Again, I tend to use organic ingredients)

For the cookies:
1 cup sugar
2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg (optional)
2 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 tsp of salt

For the frosting:
1 (8oz) package cream cheese
2 cup confectioners sugar
1/2 – 1 stick of butter (melted) 
1/4 cup milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Cream the sugar and the butter until light and fluffy. Add egg. Mix to incorporate. Add the pumpkin and mix to incorporate. Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Add the dry ingredients to the batter and mix well. Drop rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 10 minutes, or until lightly golden brown around the edges. Cool on racks. When cool, ice with the cream cheese frosting.

For the Frosting:  Beat cream cheese until light and fluffy. Beat in the powdered sugar until smooth. Add milk, butter, and vanilla. Beat until smooth. If frosting is too thick, thin with a little more milk. When cookies are cool spread with some of the frosting.
