Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 1 hour 5 minutes
- 3 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tbsp. pumpkin pie spice
- 1 tsp. kosher salt
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened, divided
- 1 (15-oz.) can pumpkin puree (about 2 cups), preferably chilled
- 2 large eggs
- 3 tsp. pure vanilla extract, divided
- 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
- 3 cup powdered sugar
- 2 tbsp. maple syrup
- Preheat oven to 350° and line two large baking sheets with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, pumpkin spice, salt, baking powder, and baking soda.
- In a separate large bowl using a hand mixer, beat brown sugar, vegetable oil, 1/2 cup butter, pumpkin puree, eggs, and 1 teaspoon vanilla until smooth. Add dry ingredients and stir until combined. (The dough will be sticky and soft.)
- Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop dough onto prepared baking sheets, leaving at least 2” between each cookie. Bake until springy to touch, about 15 minutes. Transfer cookies to a cooling rack to cool completely.
- Make filling: In a large bowl using a hand mixer, beat together remaining 1/2 cup butter and cream cheese. Add powdered sugar, maple syrup and remaining 2 teaspoons vanilla and beat until fluffy.
- Spread filling onto the bottoms of half of the cookies. Place the remaining cookies, bottom side-down, on top. Serve immediately or store in fridge in an airtight container for 2 to 3 days.
