Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Happy Fall! We are celebrating the start of pumpkin season with some delicious pumpkin cookies. These beauties are super soft and pillowy and are sure to be a crowd-pleaser with your friends and families. We will definitely be baking a few batches of these for Thanksgiving this weekend! Adding the pumpkin puree does more than just make them festive - pumpkin is a rich source of fibre, vitamin C, potassium, and beta-carotene! Your body can use beta-carotene to make vitamin A, which is a powerful antioxidant for eye health and skin health. Since this recipe only uses ½ cup of pumpkin puree you might be wondering what you can do with your remaining puree. Check out these delicious recipes below that use pumpkin puree!
