Pumpkin Spice Sugar Cookies


Sugar, pumpkin spice, Halloween and everything nice. Need I say anything more, I don't think so.

I made vanilla bean sugar cookies months ago that were a totally hit for my family and since it tis the season for everything Pumpkin Spice I wanted to do a twist on a simple sugar cookie.

Right now that is all I need, I need my pumpkin spice coffee, Halloween and I am good to go. This is my first Halloween looking recipe for the month and I have many more.


What is your favorite part of the season? Is the decoration, food, parties or all of the above? Let me know in the comments.

    My favorite part of fall are the decorations. In Florida it never really feels like fall outside so I think a lot of us overcompensate with decorations lol. And I love it! Oh and the smells. Everything is fall scented and I LOVE IT.
