Pumpkin Spice Cookies w/ Cinnamon Frosting
An easy cookie to make using Betty Crocker's Pumpkin Spice Cookie Mix.
- 1 box pumpkin spice cookie mix
- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 egg
- 1/2 stick of butter, softened
- 1 stick of butter, softened
- 4 cups of confectioners’ sugar
- 1/4 cup of milk
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract (optional)
- 1 to 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
- I skipped the vanilla as suggested by the lady who I adapted recipe from **

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Prepare a cookie sheet with a sheet of parchment paper, or with grease and flour.
Dump the cookie mix, pumpkin puree, egg and soft butter into a bowl and mix it all just until combined.
Drop spoonfuls of dough about two inches apart on the cookie sheet.
Bake for about 10 to 12 minutes.
Put the butter in the bowl of mixer and beat until smooth.
Add the confectioners’ sugar, milk, vanilla (if you want; I thought it overwhelmed the cinnamon flavor) and cinnamon*.
Mix until blended and creamy; make sure to scrape the bowl with a spatula occasionally to get any renegade cinnamon hiding at the bottom.
Frost the cookies once they’ve cooled. I also topped with a candy pumpkin.
