Why bother with pumpkin bars when you can make super-easy pumpkin cookies instead?
Apr 19, 2018

Ingredients

  • 1 roll Pillsbury™ refrigerated sugar cookie dough
  • 2 tablespoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
  • 1 package (250 g) cream cheese
  • 1 cup icing sugar

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, break cookie dough into small chunks. Add pumpkin pie spice and pumpkin. Beat with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended.
  • 2
    Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart on 2 ungreased cookie sheets.
  • 3
    Bake 14 to 16 minutes. Cool on pan 5 minutes; remove to cooling rack to cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • 4
    Meanwhile, unwrap cream cheese. Place in medium microwavable bowl. Microwave uncovered on High 1 to 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until softened. Stir in icing sugar until smooth. Spread on cookies.

Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Making these for Halloween? Transfer icing to a large resealable food-storage plastic bag, and refrigerate. When ready to ice cookies, cut a tiny piece from a corner of the bag, and squeeze icing out to make jack-o'-lantern faces or crescent shapes for harvest moons.
  • Tip 2
    In a pinch, canned cream cheese frosting can be used instead of the cream cheese and icing sugar mixture.
