If you love pumpkin and cheesecake then bake a batch of the best Easy Pumpkin Cheesecake Cookies. They start with a pumpkin cake mix cookie and end with the perfect cheesecake frosting. It is pumpkin season, don’t miss them.
To make pumpkin cookies, combine yellow cake mix, all-purpose flour, and pumpkin pie spice in a medium bowl and whisk to mix the dry ingredients. Add pumpkin puree and softened butter, then use a hand-held or stand mixer to create a thick dough
Use a ¼ measuring cup or large cookie scoop to portion the dough and shape each into a large disc. Place 6 discs on a lined baking sheet and bake for 9-11 minutes until set. Let the cookies cool completely on the baking sheet. Repeat this process for the remaining dough.
To make cheesecake frosting for the cookies, mix softened cream cheese and marshmallow fluff in a medium bowl using a hand-held mixer until smooth. Then, add powdered sugar and continue to mix until you achieve a creamy frosting.
After allowing the cookies to cool, apply cheesecake frosting by piping from the outside to the center of each cookie, sprinkle with cinnamon, and store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days or freeze for 3 months.
