Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cooking Time: 1 hour 5 minutes

 

Ingredients:

  • 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

Directions:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.)
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
