How to Make Pumpkin & Almond Cookies:
Did I mention these fabulous pumpkin peanut butter cookies use just one bowl? Yep, that’s right. You can mix ’em up and only have to do one wish. That is something I’m on board with!
We start with our wet ingredients. We’re beating up our nut butter, pumpkin, flax egg, and sugars until they’re smooth and creamy. Once you’ve got that you add your dry ingredients in, stir together, and done. Perfect cookie batter awaits!
Best of all, these cookies bake for just around 12-15 minutes. In the time it takes you to clean up, wipe down the counters, and put your baking supplies away, they’ll be done and ready to eat. Now you just have to find something delicious to dunk them into and you’re good to GO!
