Pumpkin!  Pumpkin!  Are you tired of pumpkin yet??  Not me!  That’s why I’m sharing yet another pumpkin recipe with you today.  This recipe is for Pumpkin Spice Sandwich Cookies, and let me tell you, they are AMAZING! 

Pumpkin Spice Sandwich Cookies

These cookies are actually shaped like cute little pumpkins, and they are so soft and delicious, and then sandwiched between two of them is my Pumpkin Spice Frosting, which is seriously to die for.  These cookies and frosting are totally a match made in heaven!  I hope you will make these and enjoy them just as much as I did!

Pumpkin Spice Sandwich Cookies

To make the cookie part of these Pumpkin Spice Sandwich Cookies, I followed the recipe for Pumpkin Spice Cutout Cookies from Glorious Treats.  Her recipe is absolutely perfect, and I did not change a thing! 

After making the dough and allowing it to chill, I used this cute little pumpkin cookie cutter from a set I purchased from Amazon.  I love the size of it, not too small, and not too big.  It’s juuuust right!  Plus, you get all those other cute Halloween cookie cutters, too!

I cut out all of my cookies, then I used the top of a small plastic spoon to press 3 little indents on each to make them look like a real pumpkin.  You’ll want to flip half of your cookies over before pressing the indents in them, so that when you put your sandwiches together, the indents will show on the outer side for each cookie in the sandwich.

Next, I rubbed just a tiny bit of cocoa powder on the stem part of the cookie to make it look like a real pumpkin stem.  Cocoa powder is bitter tasting on its own, but this uses so little of it that you really do not taste it while eating the cookie.

Next, I popped the cookies into the freezer for 5-10 minutes to firm back up a little bit.  If you skip this step, your indents may not show up as well on the cookies after they have baked, as they will spread more in the oven.

Bake the cookies at 350 degrees for 9-11 minutes, then transfer them to a cookie rack to cool. 

After your cookies have cooled, spread a bit of Pumpkin Spice Frosting on half of the cookies (not on the side with the indents), then place a second cookie on top (with the indented side facing out).

And there you have your perfect little Pumpkin Spice Sandwich Cookies!  Enjoy!
