cookies on rack

I am so happy that my blog is back online! 🙂  What a long 2 weeks. I really missed sharing my food with you guys. I hope you all like the new look of my blog, my web designer changed a few things and I think it looks better then ever. 😉  I have been waiting way to long to share this cookie recipe with you. You know I love squash and pumpkin right!? I thought why not try and make a pumpkin cookie, they actually turned out better then I expected. You can eat them as they are, they were delicious or you can add some cream cheese icing to make them extra tasty You can easily make these cookies vegan by subtitling a flax egg and using dairy-free cream cheese like I did!  Im so glad to be back and I can’t wait to share more recipes and exciting news with you later this week. 🙂
