Ingredients:

Serves approximately 15 cookies

To Make The Cookies:

2 1/2 cups (240g) all-purpose flour

½ teaspoon baking soda

¼ teaspoon ground allspice

1½ teaspoons baking powder

¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon

½ teaspoon kosher salt

¼ teaspoon ground ginger

⅛ teaspoon ground nutmeg

⅛ teaspoon ground clove

1 cup (227) canned pumpkin puree

2 large (100g) eggs

½ cup (118ml) vegetable oil

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup (198g) granulated sugar

 

To Make The Cream Cheese Frosting:

¼ cup (56g) unsalted butter, at room temperature

Pinch of kosher salt

½ cup (114g) cream cheese, at room temperature

1 cup confectioners’ sugar

Splash of vanilla extract

How To:

1. Spray your lined (with baking paper) baking tray with nonstick spray and preheat the oven to 163°C.

2. Whisk the flour, baking soda, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, grounded clove, grounded nutmeg, grounded allspice and grounded ginger in a medium-size bowl and set aside.

3. Thoroughly mix the sugar and eggs in a large bowl for approx 1 min until smooth, add the oil, vanilla, pumpkin puree and whisk until well mixed. Now add the mixture into the set-aside flour mix (the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients), mix until it forms a well-combined batter with no lumps.

4. Mould the batter into medium size round shape cookies using your hands and cookie cutters and line them in a baking tray with at least 2 inches of space and prepare to bake.

5. Bake the cookies for approximately 13 – 15 mins until your cake tester comes out clean when inserted in the centre of the cookies. When baked, set aside in a serving tray, and leave to cool while you make the frosting.

6. To make the cream cheese frosting, mix the cream cheese, butter, vanilla, and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer at a medium speed. Start mixing with cream cheese and butter first(approx 1 min) then add the vanilla and salt, after this, while it’s still mixing at a low speed this time, add the confectioners’ sugar and continue mixing until a thick, smooth, and fluffy frosting is made.

7. Finally use your favourite butter knife or icing piping bag to frost the cookies, serve and keep any leftovers in a freezer bag at room temperature or keep in the fridge.
