1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 c. brown sugar, backed
1/2 c. butter, softened
1/2 c. canned pumpkin
1/4 c. milk
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla

for filling:
1 package cream cheese (8 oz), softened
2 tsp butter, softened
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
4 c. powdered sugar

Get Cookin'

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine flour, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder and salt in medium bowl. Set aside.

Mix brown sugar and 1/2 cup butter in large bowl; beat with mixer until creamy.
Add pumpkin, milk, egg and vanilla; beat until well mixed.

Reduce speed to low and add the flour mixture.

Drop better by level measuring tablespoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake for 9 minutes and cool.

Next, Combine all filling ingredients except powdered sugar into a large bowl. Beat at a medium speed until smooth. Gradually add 4 cups of powdered sugar until creamy.

Spread 2 teaspoons of filling on the bottom-side of 1 cookie. Top with another cookie.

tip: for perfectly round cookies, pipe batter in 1-inch circles on parchment paper, using a piping bag without a tip.
