pumpkin cream cheese cookies

Pumpkin isn’t just for fall time enjoyment. I cook and bake with it year round. The other day I was craving some really good cookies and put these delicious pumpkin cream cheese cookies together.

Drop cookies are my favorite to make because they are so very easy. I use two bowls to mix up this cookie recipe, but often times you can get by with the one-bowl method. Regardless, they are really easy to bake and it’s really easy to clean up while the cookies are baking.

These are great for an after school snack or brunch with friends.  Store in a covered container in the refrigerator. These will keep for a couple days.
