When I eat something sweet, like Pumpkin Spice Shortbread Cookies, I want that something to impress me. I want it to be worth the sugar content and the fact that I may have to give up that second glass of wine with dinner. Am I right?
I have to tell you that these little lovelies are worth every bite. I’ve been on a pumpkin spice kick as of late, as if you didn’t already notice. I’ve posted Pumpkin Gingerbread and Apple Butter Baked French Toast in the last month alone.
Oddly, I’m not a fan of those famous pumpkin spice latte’s, but I do love a heartily pumpkin spiced cookie, scone or French toast. Especially as the days get cooler and my tea sipping increases.
These cookies are moist, buttery and so flavorful, I even like them without the maple and pumpkin spice icing. Although, my family votes for the maple and pumpkin spice icing. This is a simple recipe of four ingredients, which is my kind of sweet recipe to make. Although I can dance about the kitchen all day creating savory recipes, I don’t have quite as much patience for baking.
Which is why these Pumpkin Spice Shortbread Cookies made it to my kitchen counter. They’re so easy!
And they’re Gus approved. He was the official guardian of the cookies while I was snapping photos. 😉
We had some typical Oregon fall weather recently (this is code for rain), but it seems were getting some much-needed sunshine the next five days. So, I’m off to do some apple picking, cider tasting, cheese sampling and general fall festivities this weekend. I’ll be documenting all the fun on Instagram and Facebook and who knows, I’ll probably come home with a few more delicious recipes to post.
Wishing you a delicious Fall season!
Loads of love,
