Unsalted butter 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Brown sugar 1/2 Cup (8 tbs) (Truvia brown sugar blend)
Vanilla extract 1 Teaspoon
Egg 1 (at room temperature)
Pumpkin puree 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Baking powder 1 Teaspoon
Baking soda 1/2 Teaspoon
Ground cinnamon 1/2 Teaspoon
Ground ginger 1/4 Teaspoon
Ground cloves 1/4 Teaspoon
Ground allspice 1/4 Teaspoon
Salt 1/4 Teaspoon
For the frosting
Unsalted butter 1/2 Cup (8 tbs) (at room temperature)
Cream cheese 1/2 Cup (8 tbs) (at room temperature)
Confectioner’s sugar 2 Cup (32 tbs)
Vanilla extract 1/2 Teaspoon



Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.



In a large bowl, beat the butter with a hand mixer on medium speed for 30 seconds.

Add in the Truvia brown sugar and beat well, until well combined.

Add the vanilla, egg, and pumpkin puree, and mix until combined. Set aside.

In a separate bowl, add in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, allspice, and salt. Mix with a spatula.

Add the flour mixture to the pumpkin ingredients and whisk gently for a few seconds. Do not overmix.

Using a medium cookie scoop, portion 12 scoops of cookie dough out onto the prepared cookie sheet and bake for 14-15 minutes, until puffed and baked through. Repeat with the remaining cookie dough.

Take out the cookies and place on a cooling rack to cool.

Meanwhile, prepare the frosting – in a large bowl, whip together all the ingredients until fluffy and combined.



Spread the frosting over the cooled cookies.



Serve the cookies with tea or coffee and enjoy.
