5 Ingredient Pumpkin Cookies


Preparation Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Servings: 18


1 roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated sugar cookies

2 Tbs pumpkin pie spice

1/2 cup canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)

1 package (8 oz) cream cheese

3 cups powdered sugar


Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, break up cookie dough. Add pumpkin pie spice and pumpkin. Beat with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake 14 to 16 minutes. Cool on pan 5 minutes; remove to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, in medium microwavable bowl, microwave cream cheese, uncovered on High 40 to 60 seconds, stirring every 30 seconds, until softened. Stir in powdered sugar until smooth. Spread on cookies.

Expert Tips

Making these for Halloween? Transfer icing to a quart-sized resealable food-storage plastic bag, and refrigerate. When ready to ice cookies, cut a tiny piece from a corner of the bag, and squeeze icing out to make jack-o'-lantern faces or crescent shapes for harvest moons.

In a pinch, canned cream cheese frosting can be used instead of the cream cheese and powdered sugar mixture.
