Pumpkin Spice Cookies

These cookies are bursting with pumpkin, cinnamon, ginger with a hint of nutmeg. Then the cookies are topped with a creamy cheesecake frosting. I used a medium scoop to make these cookies,  then flattened them slightly with a glass and a little sugar.

These cookies will also freeze well if they last that long. If you don’t flatten them you will get perfectly rounded cookies. If I was leaving them like that instead of flattening them as I did I would make the cookies double the size. Then they would be similar to the sour cream cookies below.
