Spotlight Recipe: Pumpkin Cookies & Our Allergy Meal Plan

I love finding recipes to spotlight here on occasion.  I take it very seriously though.  A recipe has to really “wow” me to spotlight it, which means you should try it out too!

For this week’s spotlight recipe, meet Tessa the Domestic Diva’s Dense & Chewy Pumpkin Cookies with Maple Frosting.  I left the chocolate chips out of the recipe because I did not have any Enjoy Life when making them.  Instead, I decided to sub them for the amazing maple frosting!  Everything else in the recipe is just as Tessa devised it.  The flavors in the cookie sent me on a Fall frenzy to flavor wonderment.  (Ok, that was a little dorky!)  You get my point though.  I absolutely love my Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies (DF/EF) as well my Gluten-Free Pumpkin Cookies, but this recipe is just as amazing, especially with the maple frosting.

Make up a batch today to take to a Harvest Party, have a friend over for coffee, or indulge in them yourself for breakfast, snack, and dessert.  I’m certain you’ll love them too!

    Ive never done sushi at home but I did it at a party once. It’s tricky to get it pretty!

      It is difficult to get it pretty. I have to be honest, my husband staged those 3 for a picture 🙂 The rest weren’t as pretty, but they sure tasted good! It was only us, so it doesn’t really matter.

  2. Wow thank you Michelle, such a compliment! I am so glad you liked them! It is one of our favorites too!
