Recipe by Sabattis
"After getting this recipe from a friend, I have made them over 100 times for family and friends and they are always a hit, especially around Halloween and Thanksgiving! As far as the spices go, less is more; this is not a full-on pumpkin pie or pumpkin bread/cake. They're light and moist cookies with a taste of fall in every bite!"

cream cheese, softened
[My first time posting a review. I posted a photo, too.]
I made these last night for a church carry-in dinner. They must have looked appetizing, because I didn't have any to bring home!
I made them according to the directions using my 2 Tbs Pampered Chef cookie scoop, and got 53 cookies (12 to a sheet). I made 26 cookie sandwiches with the frosting. See my photo.
The cookie was really soft and not very sweet. With the frosting it was a little better but still more bland of a cookie than what I was hoping for.
So good! These are like eating the top of a cupcake (the best part). They go great with a cup of coffee. I did add 1/2 t. of kosher salt to the dry ingredients and I'm glad I did.
They turned out great - beware of under-cooking them, but the flavor is great and they're very moist and cake-like. Yum!
These cookies and frosting were fantastic. I did the recipe exactly as written, including the frosting. Everyone loved them !!!
These cookies tasted great! But the consistency was too flimsy. I added 1/2 cup flour and 1/4 Crisco butter flavored and they are NOW 5 star! They are still cake like and moist but they have a golden light brown crisp right around the edge and they dont fall aprt. I baked at 375 degrees.
Very light and fluffy, like cake, and with whipped cream cheese frosting - delightful!
I made these for my family one night and they were gone the next morning. :)
Only things I would change are:
- move flour up to 3 cups and add 2 eggs instead of 1.
This is so the cookies have more structure. They still have the same delicious flavor.
