 So as you can probably tell I couldn’t make up my mind, which led me to make not one, but three holidays desserts for Canadian Thanksgiving. I have already highlighted my (and seemingly everyone else’s) favourite ice cream treat, Butter Brickle, as well as a vegan-paleo options in my Pumpkin Spice Balls. So today I bring you Pumpkin Spice Snicerdoodles. With the inclusion of real purréd pumpkin, these cookies have a soft, almost cake like texture.  They are light and tasty, and you can make the case that you are eating your vegetables while you enjoy them 🙂 Happy fall to all!
