Some days, it’s fun to look into your pantry, pull out ingredients that have been laying around for a while, and create your own recipe by mixing it all together.
I haven’t made sugar cookies in a while, and since pumpkin is in season, I wondered what would happen when I added pumpkin puree to an existing cookie mix.
I was hoping for a more biscuit-like consistency, but these fluffy cookies turned out quite delicious. No added sugar was necessary, since I used a sugar cookie mix, and the pumpkin puree gave the cookies a nice seasonal orange tint.
