Soft Pumpkin Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe

Introducing the only Pumpkin Cookie recipe you'll ever need in your life. These cookies are DELICIOUS and so soft, pillowy, light and fluffy. The Cream Cheese Frosting complements them absolutely perfectly. This is the perfect easy dessert to bring to any fall gathering!

Pumpkin Cookies

I'm delivering two delicious and sugary recipes at once to you this lovely Monday morning. Over the weekend I decided it was a tragedy that I didn't have a solid pumpkin cookie recipe in my life OR a Cream Cheese Frosting! I carefully concocted two recipes ('cuz I've gotten really good at coming up with delicious cookie and frosting recipes) and crossed my fingers while the cookies baked. When I took my first bite, OHMYGOODNESS they were a hundred times better than I dreamed. They have just the perfect amount of pumpkin flavor (I personally don't love suuuuper pumpkiny things), they are super soft, pillowy and fluffy and the Cream Cheese Frosting is TO DIE FOR. This was one of those recipes that surprised me in a really deliciously good way.

If you have any sort of fall gathering to attend or host or celebrate, you absolutely must make a batch or two of these. We brought some to an event we went to last weekend and Dan overheard someone say, "Oh my GOSH these cookies are so soft and fluffy!"
