  • ½ cup butter melted and cooled down
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • ½ cup dark brown sugar
  • cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg at room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cup AP flour

Cream cheese frosting


Pumpkin cookie base

  • Preheat the oven to 350F/180C then line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat and set it aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the melted butter, pumpkin puree, brown sugar, granulated sugar, egg, and vanilla until smooth.
  • Gently fold in the flour, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, ginger, cinnamon, and salt until the dry mixture disappears.
  • Using a large cookie scooper, scoop out 12 equally sized cookie dough balls and place them on the prepared baking sheet. Gently spray the back of a spoon, or your hands with non-stick cooking spray and flatten the cookies a little to about ⅔ inch in thickness. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-16 minutes, then let the cookies cool down on the baking sheet before transferring to a cooling rack.

Cream cheese frosting

  • In a stand mixer, cream the softened cream cheese and butter until smooth. Add in the vanilla and powdered sugar and continue whipping for 4-6 minutes or until the frosting is light and fluffy.
  • Place the frosting in a piping bag with a round piping tip and pipe the frosting on top of the cooled-down cookies. Decorate each cookie with mini chocolate chips and enjoy!
