Ingredients

  • c. + 2 tbsp. whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. cream of tarter
  • 1 c. 2 sticks butter, room temperature
  • c. coconut sugar + ¼ c.
  • ¾ c. powdered coconut sugar
  • 1/2 c. pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 c. organic canola
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 eggs

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 8 oz. Philadelphia cream cheese softened
  • 2 tbsp. heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 c. powdered sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.     

  2. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, mix together flour, salt, baking soda, and cream of tarter; set aside.

  3. In the bowl of a standing mixer, cream butter and both granulated & powdered sugars together for 2 minutes until fluffy. Add pumpkin puree and slowly stream in the oil while beating. Add vanilla and then beat in the eggs one at a time until well combined. Slowly add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients, mixing until combined (scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed).

  4. Roll dough into 2 inch balls to make approx. 36 cookies. Place ¼ cup coconut sugar in a small dish. Place rolled dough on a baking sheet about 3 inches apart. Using a drinking glass (or something that is 2.5 inches in diameter), dip into sugar. Press the glass into a ball of dough until it is ½ inch thick. Repeat the process of dipping the glass into sugar and pressing it into a ball of dough.

  5. Bake for 8 minutes only. Gently remove cookies from pan onto a cooling rack and let them cool completely.

  6. For your frosting, in the bowl of a stand mixer, beat softened cream cheese. Add heavy whipping cream, pumpkin pie spice, & vanilla. Slowly add powdered sugar until you reach your desired consistency. Add more powdered sugar as needed. Add additional heavy whipping cream 1 tbsp. at a time as needed. Frost cooled sugar cookies.

Recipe Notes

For powdered coconut sugar I simply put my granulated coconut sugar in my blender and blended until fine powdery consistency.
