Recipe Thursday-Pumpkin Spice Cookies

Posted on September 16th, 2010 | Posted in Cookies, Recipes, Seasonal Products

This recipe is not very aligned with our core product line of meat and cheese products, but it’s Fall (in my mind) and I love Fall flavors!  When I was making these treats the aroma filled the kitchen as if it was Thanksgiving eve. I made these cookies for Hometown Provisions’s monthly birthday celebration. This month we are celebrating Sharon, Mike and Paul’s birthdays!!  I was very pleased with how these cookies turned out. They were light and fluffy and did not spread out at all on the baking sheet.  Also you could choose to add cream cheese frosting if you wanted to sweeten them up a bit.  Aside from being a delicious recipe it is also a diabetic recipe.  Since diabetes is a growing epidemic in our country I wanted to attempt a diabetic recipe.  For anyone who wants to get involved to help stop diabetes the American Diabetes Association holds a fundraiser called Step Out, that will be occurring in Harrisburg on October 3rd.
