I'm starting a thread strictly for recipes since these "gems" get buried in an avalanche of posting on another thread. Post away all you RF kitchen scientists!
I hope you like them!
PUMPKIN SPICE COOKIES
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup pumpkin puree (I use canned pumpkin)
2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. + 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream together butter and sugar. Add pumpkin puree, egg, and vanilla and mix well.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt, and pumpkin pie spice.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until well combined. Drop by rounded tablespoons on to a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake for 10-12 minutes until cookies are very lightly browned around the edges.

Cream together butter and cream cheese. Add brown sugar, vanilla and cinnamon and mix until creamy and well combined.
Mix in the powdered sugar until the icing is the proper consistency.
