Nothing welcomes fall like baking a batch of Soft Pumpkin Cookies! These easy whole wheat pumpkin spice cookies are topped with an incredible cream cheese frosting.

Truth be told, I don’t give two craps about pumpkin anything. The whole onslaught of “pumpkin-spiced everything” makes me roll my eyes so hard that I may sprain them one of these days.

But these cookies from Troy’s grandma have changed my mind about snickering at the basicness of pumpkin. They taste of Fall, and of fresh pumpkin mixed with cinnamon.
