Homemade Pumpkin Spice Cookies
In the last few days, the temperature has really cooled off. The nights and mornings are crisp and Fall is in the air. So I have started my outside fall decorating, enjoying time by the outside fire pit and I have started to bake with one of my favorite flavors, pumpkin.
These spicy pumpkin cookies are simple and easy. They are also nice and soft. Plus they are a delicious mixture of pumpkin and all the Fall spices.
Here is a couple of my Fall floral designs I whipped up. Fall is my favorite season and I really love these arrangements. I just had to share.
