A Cookie A Day: The Treats Truck's Pumpkin Swirl Cookies

An almond and cinnamon scented dough is spread with pumpkin filling, rolled, chilled, sliced and baked into lovely little swirls that are all warm with cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice i.e. pumpkin pie spice. But the pumpkin doesn't end there. Once the cookies have cooled they're iced with a sugary pumpkin glazed that makes these cookies the best of both world—all of the crumbly butteriness of a great pie crust combined with pumpkin filling all rolled into a great little cookie.

Bourbon Pumpkin Pie

This is my dream pumpkin pie, smooth and creamy, with a double booze infusion. There's a hint of bourbon in the filling, but since booze that is baked loses its edge, I've incorporated it into the maple bourbon mascarpone topping as well.

Mixed Review: Williams-Sonoma's Pumpkin Spice Cookies

Pumpkin cookies are usually moist, cakey treats as soft as a whoopie pie half or a muffin top. I was curious to try Williams-Sonoma's Pumpkin Spice Cookie Mix, because it's meant for either slice-and-bake or cutout cookies. Would all of that delicious pumpkin pie flavor translate to a thinner, crisper cookie? More

Cakespy: Mellowcreme Pumpkin Cake

I'm putting these pumpkins on a pedestal—literally—in a full-sized cake form tribute to the Mellowcreme Pumpkin.
