Pumpkin Pie Cookies #SundaySupper

Delicious, Mouth Watering Pumpkin Pie Cookies!

Fall is officially here tomorrow and I can already recall the scent of  baked apple and pumpkin pies in the oven that my grandmother would make. Funny how scent can recall a memory, eh?

Each year we have a family reunion at a rented hall and people I have never seen before (the extended family) bring delicious foods, gifts and grandmom greets us with her famous pies. Pumpkin piiiieeee. Yessss!

The truth is that I’m a little jealous of grandmom and her pies. I am left with little time to dedicate to making a crust from scratch or even dusting off the mixer. My two little children keep me so busy that I only make a homemade crust and filling once a year. (Please don’t tell grandmom that!)

Pumpkin pie cookies

No one can eat just one, I guarantee it!

But what I do have is time to quickly throw a few ingredients into a bowl and make magic. Imagine bottling up a creamy pumpkin pie into small bite size pieces. Imagine the warm scent of cinnamon and nutmeg filling the air. Oh, things are looking up, Grandmom!

Pumpkin cookies super yummy

Yep, I have “sampled” them! ;)

These pumpkin pie cookies are the perfect reminder of  her kitchen goodness …only smaller and in the shape of cookies not pie. :)  I think she would still be proud. Wishing everyone a beautiful crisp fall!
