The Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies that made their debut here a while ago, were so highly requested that I just had to modify them for the fall know..the season of all things ‘Pumpkin’!!  And what a fun and delicious addition it was!

The Pumpkin made these cookies extra special with its subtle spice and rich, smooth texture!  These are light, yet cakey and filled with a creaminess that only the cream cheese and Pumpkin can provide!

So super simple and this recipe makes approx. 2 and a half dozen cookies, so you can share the YUM!

~Plenty to share means plenty of people who will be begging you for the recipe~  so be prepared!  🙂

What you’ll need:

8 oz. cream cheese

1 egg

4 tbsp. butter..melted

1/2 cup pumpkin puree

1-1/2 cups granulated sugar

1-1/2 cups flour

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 tsp. baking powder

sugar for topping..regular or decorative

An electric hand mixer helps, but isn’t necessary!


In a large bowl combine the Butter and Cream Cheese until well blended…

Add in the Sugar…

And the egg, flour, vanilla and pumpkin, blend until smooth…

Scoop out approx. 1 tbsp. of the batter onto a parchment lined sheet pan, making sure to leave the batter in a dollop, and natural shape..(don’t flatten the batter)

Place them approx. 1-2″ apart and sprinkle them with sugar…

Bake them at 350 for approx. 12-15 minutes, just until they’re slightly golden and puffed.

Let them cool.

Serve them up…

There’s plenty to share…

So grab a bunch for YOU!  ~Enjoy!  🙂
