The holidays are here and that means making time for holiday shopping, getting together with loved ones and good eats and treats! Today I’m bringing you a new recipe I tried out this week. Pumpkin Spice Cookies! I never heard or even tried pumpkin spice cookies before however after completing my weekend shopping trip at the local grocery store, I literally stumbled upon an end cap with Betty Crocker Pumpkin Cookie Mix. I’m admittedly a person with a sweet tooth so why not give this a try right? Best of all these cookies only have 1 gram of fat and 100 calories per serving! They are virtually guilt free! So with that said, let’s bake some Pumpkin Spice Holiday Cookies!
