Definitely make sure to cool the dough between baking. Make sure you're using a consistant scoop size...Also, if you're doing several rounds in the oven, remember to let the cookie sheet COOL before you put the next batch of dough on. Cool ALL the way. Otherwise, the butter will start melting from the heat on the sheet, and you'll end up with cookies that spread a lot more. Maybe invest in an oven thermometer?

There's nothing saying that you CAN'T use cream cheese frosting, but honestly, I wouldn't. Could you make, possibly, a pumpkin cake instead of vanilla?
Boar, I'll have to tell my DH that. He makes our bread-type items, including bagels and pizza crusts...
Pizza? Yes please!
