Note: Welcome to our third annual Cookie Month! Every weekday in December we're going to be sharing a cookie recipe with all of you, just in time for the holidays. So let's get those ovens preheated and get baking!
This time of year pumpkin makes its way into nearly every dessert imaginable—pies, cakes, tarts, cheesecakes, ice creams, and all of those spiced coffee drinks—but somehow pumpkin and cookies rarely meet. And after testing out these Pumpkin Swirl Cookies from The Treats Truck Baking Book, we're thinking that the two should be spending way more time together.
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. But the pumpkin doesn't end there. Once the cookies have cooled, they're iced with a sugary pumpkin glaze that makes these cookies the best of both worlds—all of the crumbly butteriness of a great pie crust (with pumpkin filling!) brought together with a great little cookie.
