PUMPKIN SPICE COOKIES WITH CINNAMON CREAM CHEESE FROSTING

These Pumpkin Spice Cookies with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting are cookies from Nancy and my childhood.  They are made with love from our mom’s decades old recipe and taste like a bite of the Holidays.  Cake-y and pumpkin-y with a smear of sweet cream cheese frosting these are a great cookie to make for Thanksgiving, Christmas or especially a Christmas Cookie Exchange.
