Pumpkin Spice Cookies
What goes perfectly with pumpkin? Cinnamon and spices of course! It’s like the two go hand in hand and are rarely without each other. That’s true for these cookies too. You’ll love the cinnamon that’s in the cookie recipe as well as the touch in the frosting.

One of my favorite things to do is make treats for other people and drop them off just because. Treats, cellophane, baker’s twine and printable tags = happiness. Download a sheet of printables and deliver some happiness to the people you are grateful for.
