Some times you just need a little bit of holiday flavor. Cookies are the perfect way to have a little bit of a sweet treat without busting your calorie count. These are our favorite cookie recipes that not only scream fall but are perfect for Thanksgiving.
Sometimes you can just take a tried and true recipe like chocolate chip cookies and add a little bit of fall to them by adding a few pinches of cinnamon. Also think about taking your favorite sugar cookie recipe and icing them with maple buttercream or pumpkin spice buttercream for a more Thanksgiving flavored cookie.
Spiced Thanksgiving Cookies
These cookies are similar to sugar cookies but with the addition of pumpkin pie spice to the dough, you get a whole new kind of cookie. You can not only cut these into shapes but also decorate them. They are perfect plain or iced.
Gluten Free Pumpkin Cookies
These cookies are soft, chewy and sweet. They are gluten free too and that is a big bonus! You will not be able to eat just one of these cookies that’s for sure! Amy, from Amy in the Kitchen really does a great job of giving you a cookie that’s a crowd pleaser.
Caramel Apple Cider Cookies
These cookies really pack in a lot of flavor. Filled with rich caramel, these cookies have a rich surprise inside. They also have a slight flavor of cinnamon too. They are chewy, sweet and just a slice of perfection. We found this gem of a recipe on the blog “The girl who ate everything”.
Maple and Pecan Cookies
These scream fall. Maple, Pecan, Vanilla and Buttery…all good! If you love maple then you’ll love these cookies. They are easy to make too. The blog “I adore food” nailed this one when it comes to fall cookies.
