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!"

[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 love these cookies! I had two make two batches of them because they were so delicious I could not get my husband to stop eating them! I had read they were better after 24 hours but I wouldn't know because they were gone in less then that! Be careful not to under bake these! I did raise the oven temp to 375 and bake for 13 minutes. Also the recipe calls for a 3oz package of cream cheese, I assumed that was a typo and used and 8oz package and the frosting was really yummy!
