Ingredients
Cookies
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups firmly packed dark-brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 15oz can of organic pumpkin puree
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
Cream Cheese Filling:
  • 3 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 to 3 drops of food coloring of choice, optional
  • Sprinkles of choice, optional
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place parchment paper on 2 baking sheets
  2. In a large bowl, mix together flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves; place to the side. In another bowl, whisk together brown sugar and oil until well incorporated. Add pumpkin puree and whisk together. Next add eggs and vanilla. Mix ½ of flour mixture over pumpkin mixture and whisk, then take the other half and do the same. Fold and mix everything together until everything is well incorporated.
  3. Take a tablespoon or in the case I used an ice cream scoop. Drop onto baking sheet. Bake cookies until they crack on top and a toothpick comes out clean when placed in the middle of the cookie. Should take about 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool on rack before filling with cream cheese.
  4. While the cookies are cooling you can start your filling.
  5. In a medium bowl using an electric mixer mix butter until smooth. Add cream cheese to butter and beat. Sift confectioner’s sugar and beat again. Add food coloring now if you would like and mix. Once done you can start to fill cookies.
