Soft Frosted Pumpkin Spice Cookies

These are quickly becoming one of my favorite cookies of all time! I have said before that I love Pumpkin and when you top it with a cream cheese frosting, well who can beat that? Seriously! Frosted Pumpkin Spice cookies.... YUM I make these for any party that I have or go to and there are usually never any left. If I just want a few for our family I will divide the recipe and then just make a small batch. The frosting is a big batch and I actually can frost 2 batches with one batch of frosting. but the frosting freezes well so You can store it till you need it! Which is what I do. I personally don't like these cookies after about 2 days so I try to make the batch only as big as will be eaten right away. They kind of get crumbly after 2 days. And I usually never frost them until right before the party, just so they are creamy and delicious!  These cookies really make you feel like you are biting into the fall season with the spices and pumpkin! They are one of my favorites!
