Pumpkin Sandwich Cookies

This is the time of year when I love to bake cookies. I love surprising my kids with some homemade cookies after school every now and then. It’s also the time of year when we all start craving pumpkin. These Pumpkin Sandwich Cookies with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting are the perfect fall treat. The cookies are chewy and flavorful. The frosting is rich and creamy. The pumpkin flavor in the cookies and the maple flavor in the frosting really complement each other.

Fall In Love

I am ready for fall! These pumpkin sandwich cookies get me all excited for apple cider, donuts, soup and all the other delicious fall foods. I got the base of this recipe from Nikki over at Chef In Training from her Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies. Nikki is a cookie master. All of her cookie recipes look amazing!

For these cookies, I added a little extra spice and made a simple maple cream cheese frosting for the center. They turned out so yummy! The Jell-O Pumpkin Spice Pudding Mix is seasonal so you may want to stock up before it’s gone. They don’t last on the store shelf very long. I make sure to grab several boxes at the beginning of the season. If you can’t find them at your local grocery store, you can purchase them on Amazon. I use the Jell-O Pumpkin Spice Pudding Mix for this recipe and in our Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake and our Pumpkin Eclair Cake. There are all kinds of possibilities! This is what the box looks like:

    1. Thanks for catching that! The chocolate chips are optional and you would add them after fully incorporating the flour into the cookie dough. I will fix the recipe.

    These pumpkin cookies are the perfect recipe to enjoy during the fall! They’re super soft and I love that maple/cinnamon frosting!

    1. You should be able to find it at most grocery stores anytime now that we are into the fall season. I found it last year at Wal-mart. It is also available to buy on Amazon, but it’s a little pricey right now. I think I’ll stock up as soon as I see it this season. Thank you for asking!
