Pumpkin Pecan Cookies

Sharing is caring!

These Pumpkin Pecan cookies are just what I needed this weekend. I was so excited we actually got a taste of fall weather! This pumpkin cookie recipe is perfect to celebrate the season!

This recipe is perfect for a fun fall dessert idea and they smell delicious when they are baking in the oven. Much like our Pumpkin Spice Cake, these cookies offer a nice taste of pumpkin spice.

It looks like we are headed back towards the 80’s for the week but it was still nice to have a little taste of autumn for a while.

Pumpkin Pecan Cookies

I decided I needed some comforting, so  whipped up these Pumpkin Pecan cookies. I figured I had to take advantage of the cooler weather and bake. Besides I just love the smell of pumpkin in the house this time of year.

I also needed this because my football team has not been doing well this season. Our last game was really close and a tough game to watch. We almost came back but couldn’t do it. Sigh. So these cookies helped ease the loss.

Pumpkin Cookies with Pecans

These cookies are light and soft and are perfectly comforting.























There is just something about baking cookies on a rainy day.

These cookies are so good with a hot cup of tea or hot apple cider. You can even add a little icing if you want. But either way, they are good.
