Keto Pumpkin Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting

What is it about fall that makes you want to get in the kitchen and whip up something yummy? And by something yummy, I mean, something pumpkin-flavored! I used to think I didn't like anything pumpkin flavored, I have no idea why. I think the gross looking pumpkin puree didn't help, but once I got over that, I became obsessed. Not obsessed enough to think I need a pumpkin spice latte, but I digress. I think you are going to LOVE these delicious fall cookies. They have just the right hint of pumpkin, with a delicious cream cheese frosting with a sprinkle of pecans.

fall dessert ideas


  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup butter softened
  • 2/3 cup almond flour
  • ½ cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice (or a combination of clove, allspice, and cinnamon)
  • ½ cup Swerve Confectionary Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. For the cookies: In a bowl, combine the butter, cream cheese, pumpkin, vanilla, and powdered sugar.
  3. Add in the eggs and beat for 1-2 minutes.
  4. Combine dry ingredients with wet mixture and beat until fully combined.
  5. Using a small scoop, place dough onto parchment-lined baking sheets. I used a fork to press down on them to make them flat. You can keep them round or flatten them.
  6. Bake for 13-18 minutes. Start keeping an eye at 13 minutes as you just want the tops to lightly brown, not burn.
  7. Let the cookies cool completely before frosting them.
  8. To make the frosting: combine all 4 ingredients in a bowl and mix until fluffy.
  9. Spread evenly on your cookies and enjoy!
