These soft cookies are almost like little pieces of cake. With chopped pecans sprinkled over a confectioners’ sugar frosting, they’re a pretty addition to a dessert table.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. 1. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and sugars until smooth. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in pumpkin and vanilla. Combine the dry ingredients; gradually add to pumpkin mixture and mix well.
  2. 2. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks to cool.
  3. 3. For frosting, in a small bowl, combine the confectioners’ sugar, butter, vanilla and enough water to achieve frosting consistency. Frost cookies; sprinkle with pecans.
  4. Tip's: I doubled the icing recipe to have enough and had a perfect amount. I also added a little cinnamon to the icing and sprinkled cinnamon sugar on top instead of using nuts.
  5. Next time I will add more spices and maybe add some cinnamon or nutmeg to the frosting.
