Fall is only a few days away and these cookies are perfect to get into the spirit of the season of changing leaves, crisper air, and everything pumpkin spice!


Yields: 24

Total Time: 42 min

Ingredients

  • 3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly-ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
Filling Ingredients
  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
Cinnamon-sugar Coating
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
  • dash of allspice

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, salt cinnamon, and nutmeg together. Set aside.
  2. In a Kitchen-Aid mixer with a paddle attachment, beat together the butter and sugars on medium high speed until fluffy about two to three minutes.
  3. Blend in pumpkin puree, beat in egg and then add vanilla. Slowly add dry ingredients on low speed just until combined. Cover and chill dough for an hour.
  4. To make the cream cheese filling, blend cream cheese, sugar and vanilla together. Chill for an hour.
  5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lien your baking sheets with parchment paper. In a small bowl, combine the sugar and spices for the coating and set aside.
  6. To make the cookies, take a tablespoon of the cookie batter. Flatten it like a pancake and place a teaspoon of the cream cheese in the center. Form another tablespoon of the cookie batter into a flat pancake shape and place on top of the cream cheese. Pinch the edges together sealing in the cream cheese and roll into a ball. Roll in the cinnamon sugar coating and place on the prepared baking sheet two inches apart.
  7. Repeat until the dough is gone and flatten the cookie dough balls with a heavy bottomed glass or measuring cup.
  8. Bake the cookies for 10-15 minutes or until the tops start to crack. Let cool on the baking sheet for five minutes and transfer to a wire rack.

Enjoy!
