We were craving a treat on Sunday, but the only problem was were out of almost everything we needed to make all of our favorite desserts! Which is no surprise since we’ve been trying to cut back lately!

Luckily for us, we had everything thing we needed to adapt this delicious Melt-in-your-mouth Pumpkin Cookie recipe from Dear Crissy. We changed up the frosting and added cream cheese because I just think pumpkin and cream cheese are the perfect pairings! 

These pumpkin butter cookies with cream cheese frosting were SO soft and fluffy! You won’t be disappointed!






Make sure you have some neighbors to share these delicious pumpkin butter cookies cream cheese frosting with because this recipe makes about 3 dozen!

We took these around the neighborhood and were left with about a dozen, the kids quickly finished those off that night!

  1. I made something close to this for my office several years ago & they went NUTS! I will have to try your version this year!

  2. How do you store these? Do you have to keep in the refrigerator or airtight container? How long do these keep? So happy I found your recipe!

    1. I have never stored them for long because they get eaten too fast! I think a airtight container would work great!
