- Three cups whole-wheat white flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- One teaspoon baking soda
- One teaspoon salt
- 2 large eggs
- 1 can (15 ounces) unseasoned pumpkin puree
- 2 cups light brown sugar

Pre-heat oven to 375°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, whisk flour, baking powder and baking soda together.
Mix eggs, brown sugar, oil, and pumpkin in a stand mixer. Beat for about one minute. Mix 2 tablespoons milk, 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, 2 tablespoons espresso powder, and vanilla. Beat until combined, approximately 1 minute. Mix the flour mixture in three parts. After each addition, mix until well combined.
Drop 2 tablespoons of the dough per cookie onto the prepared pans. Bake the cookies for 12-14 minutes or until they are dry to the touch. Allow the cookies to cool on the pans for five minutes. Then transfer them to a wire rack and let cool completely. This should take about 20 minutes. Continue with the rest of the dough.
Cream cheese, butter, and confectioners’ sugar are combined in a stand mixer. Beat until smooth, approximately 2 minutes. In a small bowl, combine the remaining 1 tablespoon milk with 1 teaspoon each pumpkin spice and espresso powder. Mix until well combined. Spread the frosting over the cookies.
