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.

  1. 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!

      • 1/4 teaspoon is exactly what I used. I tasted it to see if it needed more and it didn’t seem to. These cookies turned out delicious! My son (37) declared them a winner and said I could make them any time. The real test will be tomorrow night when my grandson tries them. Of course, I will make them again regardless. Just more for me if he doesn’t : )

        I had my doubts about the frosting. It reminded me of frosting that had crisco in it and I always hated that. The frosting really is good and adds the perfect touch to the cookies. Good job on the recipe!
