For one, they have pumpkin and pecans, which instantly make them quintessential Thanksgiving dessert food. Hello, pumpkin pie replacement and sweet potato casserole with pecans! And I added some white chocolate chips for a little texture and added sweetness, because pumpkin and white chocolate are actually a match made in heaven, if you didn’t already know.
The things you learn on food blogs, right?
Also, these are made with a mix – Krusteaz’s Pumpkin Spice Cookie Mix, to be precise, which makes them a cinch to make. Seriously, throw the mix together with some butter and egg, stir in the white chips, and voila – your dough is done. Simple as that, my friends. Once the cookies are done baking, you easily create the pumpkin glaze that tops each and every cookie with its sinful deliciousness. After glazing each cookie, sprinkle on some chopped pecans for a finishing touch.
These cookies can be made days in advance since they stay so supremely soft over the course of a couple days, so no need to break in the oven during the big meal for a tray of cookies. Or if everyone’s saved room for pie, make them as small gifts for your Thanksgiving guests to take home as a little apres-meal treat. You’ll be the host(ess) with the most(ess)!
Best of all, as part of Krusteaz’s Bakers Dozen program, I’ve made these for the Krusteaz website… so be sure to grab the recipe HERE!
Enjoy making the cookies! Remember, GRAB THE RECIPE NOW!
Have a sweet day!
