Paleo Pumpkin Spice Cookies

Let’s hear it for fall.  It’s a time where I get to revel in the appearance of the golden and blood red leaves of the trees in my neighborhood.  It’s also my favorite season if only for the warm scent of cinnamon baking in my oven.

It’s amazing how the smell of these pumpkin spice cookies wrapped filled my home with holiday cheer. I snatched them out of the oven and destroyed several before I frosted them.  These cookies, like any treat with a lot of spice, get better as they age.

I’ve also shared this recipe over at the Paleo Mama so go check it out.

Would coconut oil work? I avoid palm oil because the industry destroys rainforests and is wiping out the orangutan population.

Butter or lard would be a better substitue hun. Also, I would check out the Topical Traditions brand because they are sustainable harvested.

How much cinnamon is in the frosting? I will have to guess as I am making them right now, but the amount appears to be 1/s and that could be anything. Thanks!
