{Pumpkin Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting}

These are so fantastic and moist!! Best pumpkin cookie I’ve had yet. You can also omit the frosting and add chocolate chips, or better yet do all three 🙂 This recipe makes a lot so if you aren’t feeding a crowd I would cut this in half.

2 cups shortening
2 cups white sugar
2 cups canned pumpkin
2 eggs
2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp salt
4 cups flour

Cream shortening, white sugar and pumpkin. Add the eggs and mix well. Sift together the baking soda, cinnamon, salt and flour. Add to the pumpkin mixture and mix well.
Drop from spoon to cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees

Frosting
1 8oz package cream cheese
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
