Pumpkin Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting

Pumpkin Cookies!

Don't really need to say much.  They're absolutely addicting, and you need to bake them.  Now.

Also, they probably lasted for only about 1 hour at KD before they were all gone.  This shows just how great they are :)

Really these cookies are perfect for this time of year!  They got me really excited for Thanksgiving, and now I can't wait for Thanksgiving Break!  Enjoy! 

Pumpkin Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting 

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. cinammon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. cloves - I didn't have cloves, so I just added ~pinch more nutmeg!
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/4 cup canned pumpkin (~1 can)
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 350F.
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, spices & salt; set aside.
In another large bowl, cream together butter and sugars.
Add pumpkin, egg, & vanilla; stir in pumpkin until just combined.
Add dry ingredients.
Drop by rounded tsp-fuls (for smaller cookies!) on a greased cookie sheet.
Bake for ~10 minutes; allow to cool before frosting!
