Healthier Pumpkin Spice Cookies - a delicious, fall dessert or snack | This Healthy Table

We had a bit of a cold snap this weekend, so I've been transitioning to fall recipes - I've made several slow cooker soups (coming to the blog later this week!) I'm pretty excited about using pumpkin in a few recipes - I didn't really have access to pumpkin when I was living in the Middle East and last fall I was so busy buying and then setting up our new house and searching for a job, I didn't get many fall recipes up on the blog. I've got big plans to fix that this year!

Here are a couple pumpkin recipes from other bloggers that I'm looking forward to trying:
