PUMPKIN SPICE COOKIES WITH CREAM CHEESE FROSTING



PUMPKIN SPICE COOKIES WITH CREAM CHEESE FROSTING
Spiced cookies with a wonderful sweet cream cheese frosting, reminiscent of the real thing.  I have another great recipe HERE that my friend Barbara Goldstein (Barbo) and her husband really like.

21/2 cups Gluten-Free Bake Mix (CLICK for recipe) (750 mL)
2 tsp cinnamon (10 mL)
1 tsp baking powder (5 mL)
1 tsp baking soda (5 mL)
1/2 tsp nutmeg (2 mL)
1/2 tsp ground cloves (2 mL)
1/2 tsp salt, OR half the amount (2 mL)
1 egg
1/2 cup butter, softened (125 mL)
Liquid sweetener (sucralose or stevia) to equal 11/4 cups sugar (300 mL)
11/8 cups canned pumpkin (280 mL)
1/4 cup granulated erythritol (60 mL)
1 tsp vanilla extract (5 mL)

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).  In medium bowl, combine Gluten-Free Bake Mix, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, cloves and salt.

In food processor, process egg, butter, liquid sweetener, pumpkin, erythritol and vanilla extract.  Add dry ingredients and process.  Drop by 2 tablespoonfuls on greased cookie sheet.  Flatten and shape cookies with the back of spoon sprayed with nonstick cooking spray, when necessary to prevent sticking.  Bake in oven 13 to 15 minutes, or until brown underneath.  When cool, frost with Cream Cheese Frosting, page___.
