Gluten Free Pumpkin Cookies
- 1 cup light brown sugar
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup canola oil
- 1 15 oz. can pumpkin
- 2 eggs lightly beaten
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 3 1/2 cups gluten free all purpose flour blend
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 T pumpkin pie spice
- 4 oz cream cheese, room temperature
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
- (To make the pumpkins add orange food coloring to the frosting)
Preheat oven to 350° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl combine brown sugar, sugar, canola oil, pumpkin, eggs and vanilla until fully incorporated.
In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and pumpkin pie spice.
Pour 1/3 of the dry mixture at a time into the wet ingredients making sure to fully combine before adding more.
Use a small cookie scoop to place mounds of the dough onto the parchment paper.
Flatten out the mounds by smoothing the top with the back of a spoon. Then use your favorite Halloween shape cookie cutter.
Bake for 11-13 minutes.
Remove from the oven, transfer cookies to a cooling rack and let cool before glazing.
To make the frosting, combine the cream cheese, powdered sugar and yogurt until smooth. (I like to make my frosting thicker so I use less yogurt)
Frost each cookie and enjoy!
