These are the perfect breakfast, snack or dessert time cookie and pair great with coffee or a glass of almond milk! Watch me make them below.
The Art Of Pinwheel Cookies!
This was our first time attempting pinwheels, and now looking back, we definitely should have made these a lot sooner. You should know, however, making pinwheel cookies is an art and requires longer than usual. After you make the dough and fill it with your desired filling, pumpkin being the filling of choice in this recipe, you roll it up and freeze it for a minimum of 4 hours. We know waiting isn't fun, but it allows these cookies to be possible!
Fall Dessert Recipes
What makes these fall dessert cookies? The pumpkin of course! But, fall doesn't only mean pumpkin - it means pecan pie, snickerdoodle cookies and hearty, bacon apple pork chops! When the cold seasons start to roll in we all look for warm and comforting foods, and dessert fits both of those boxes! We have recipes for all seasons, but desserts fitting for the fall season are the best kind.
Healthy Pumpkin Cookies
No matter the time of year, health cookies are always in season, especially when they are made with pumpkin! A couple tips about these cookies is that the freezing is extremely important. This prevents the cookies from breaking apart when you cut them prior to baking. Also, something to note is that the longer they cool for the harder they get. We found that the cookies peaked hardness the following day, which is how we like them. So, if you are taking these to an party or dinner, it would be a good idea to make them a day in advance! If you are struggling to decide what to make for your next holiday party, give these healthy pumpkin cookies a try!
Note: Flours vary brand to brand so when making your cookie dough you want to be able to roll it out without it being to sticky or crumbly.
