Glazed Pumpkin Spice Cookies

These pumpkin cookies bake up soft and cakey and have a wonderful pumpkin flavor. The vanilla glaze on top makes them a delicious treat. These are great with coffee in the morning or to snack on throughout the day (like I did).

They almost look like mini cakes - so soft, moist and fluffy. They will be my new fall cookie. Maybe I will try to make my icing look like a ghost.

I can't believe it's already time for fall cookies. Pumpkin and gingerbread lattes aren't far off.

I had my first Pumpkin Latte the other day. I stopped into a coffee shop before a hair appt. and they were on the menu. I couldn't resist! Today I also bought the ground pumpkin spice coffee from Trader Joe's. I'm a sucker for fall.

I bought the pumpkin coffee at TJ's last week too! It's good mixed with the regular coffee - a little strong on its own.
