Diving into the fall baking season feels so good this year and these pumpkin cookies are the best place to start. They’re extra thick with a soft and cakey texture. I pack them with plenty of flavor, too. The maple cream cheese icing is a delicious addition, but the cookies are just as wonderful plain. They’re very easy to make (I promise!) and best of all– there’s no cookie dough chilling required. Start preheating that oven now!
