    <

Directions

  • Make the cookies
  • In a medium mixing bowl stir together the flour, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, baking soda, and cream of tartar. In a large mixing bowl beat together the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until creamy. Stir in the egg yolk, vanilla extract, and pumpkin puree. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just combined. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 350°F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Drop heaping tablespoons of dough onto prepared baking sheets (or for more evenly-rounded cookies use a 2-tablespoon cookie scoop) about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10 to 13 minutes or until the cookies are set. Allow to cool thoroughly on wire racks.
  • Make the frosting
  • Beat together cream cheese, butter, and vanilla until well blended. Stir in pumpkin pie spice, then add powdered sugar one cup at a time, mixing to fully incorporate. Frost thoroughly cooled cookies and then garnish with a light dusting of additional pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon or freshly-grated nutmeg.
