Pumpkin Spice Sugar Cookies
Updated: Oct 26, 2017
Fall is officially underway, so here is my pumpkin spice recipe for you pumpkin lovers out there! This was inspired by a recent recipe for pumpkin sugar cookies that my friend Kate shared on her Facebook page. She loves everything pumpkin spice, fall, and baking cookies. The recipe was of course made with all purpose flour, lots of sugar, and refined vegetable oil, so I promised to make it without all the junk. So here you go, Kate, hope you give them a try! And you can enjoy a few (ok, maybe a dozen;)) without the guilt, or the blood sugar hit!
This is a soft sugar cookie. I attempted a chewy, crispy sugar cookie without much success. I think the addition of pumpkin puree and the lack of a large amount of cane sugar is the reason for this. If and when I get it right, I will definitely post the recipe because I actually prefer the chewy kind!
These cookies are good with just some whipped coconut cream, or if you do dairy, a cream cheese icing is super yummy!
