Gluten Free Pumpkin Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting are full of pumpkin spice goodness with a glorious cream cheese frosting right on...
Calling all pumpkin lovers, these gluten free pumpkin cookies with cream cheese frosting are for YOU.
They’re full of warm pumpkin spice flavor (I used a homemade pumpkin pie spice but you can use store-bought) and that cream cheese frosting is to-die-for.
I’ve gone full-on pumpkin mode this year. I actually started posting pumpkin recipes in August when I couldn’t wait to share my gluten free pumpkin banana bread recipe. Like, seriously couldn’t wait so August it was! #sorrynotsorry
I’ve also made my pumpkin cake with cream cheese frosting a couple of times — just in different versions. I turned it into a layer cake by baking it in three 8-inch pans for my sister’s birthday in September.
I also scaled it down and made mini cakes with it. That’s right — that big ginormous cake turned into a little tiny layer cake that’s baked in ramekins and frosted to perfection. I’ve been wanting to share that recipe for months now. I literally can’t wait until that one drops!
In the meantime, I am SO happy to be sharing these cookies because they’re almost like the mini cakes, just in bite-sized cookie form!
The cookies definitely have that soft, cake-like texture we all love. They’re like little pumpkin cloud covered in more clouds of cream cheese frosting. BTW, I also included directions for making the cookies and the frosting dairy free. It’s a win-win for everyone.
I also topped these with a few sprinkles — just be sure to use gluten free sprinkles to keep them gluten free.
My husband is usually a chocolate and peanut butter kind of guy and likes to complain when I make too many fruit desserts (technically pumpkin IS a fruit). However, that has not stopped him from snacking on these every night since I’ve made them.
And, to clarify, by complain, I mean a friendly grumble about how he needs more chocolate in his life. Enjoy!
