The BEST Frosted Pumpkin Cookies

Hey! Its Scarlett from Made It. Ate It. Loved It. and I am here to share with you one of my favorite fall recipes. Let me just begin by telling you how much I love Fall/Halloween. Any body that knows me knows of my love for Halloween. I spend days decorating my house. I have my Bunco group over for a special Halloween night and I have my annual couples Halloween party;which is probably one of my favorite nights of the year!

Well now that I have confessed of my love for Halloween its back to the cookies. These cookies have been my favorite for years! They are always at the Bunco night and also make an appearance at the Halloween couples party. These are the perfect cookie to take to any Fall event! They are soft, moist, fluffy, and delicious! Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Super Moist Pumpkin Cookies

Cream together:
2 cups sugar
2 cups butter flavored shortening
2 cups pumpkin
2 large eggs

Add:
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 teaspoons nutmeg
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 teaspoons ground cloves

Beat in (sifted):
5 cups All-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Do the steps above then grab a cookie scoop and place (12) cookie dough balls per cookie sheet. Bake for 12 minutes. The cookies will rise alot so once they are done smash down a little with a spatula. Set aside and let cool before frosting. These cookies are perfect freezer cookies! I love frosting half of them and then freezing the rest for another day! (Freeze after they are cooked and then take out of the freezer and frost them.)

Frosting:
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 lb powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon nutmeg

Combine ingredients above and frost cookies once they are cooled.

I also love making the frosting orange to be more festive or I sprinkle a little nutmeg on the top of each cookie!
