What is better than one cookie? Two cookies – correct!

What is better than two cookies? Three cookies – well, technically also yes, but two cookies sandwiched together to make a mega awesome cookie is the correct answer in today’s scenario!

So take two pumpkin spiced cookies that you’ve baked from scratch that make the whole house smell a-ma-zing, and while they cool off, whip up some cinnamon cream cheese frosting to make your cookie sandwiches.

Then, once you’ve spread a thick layer of frosting between the two cookies you add some sprinkles because sprinkles make everything better and voila, pumpkin spice sandwich cookies ready to enjoy!

How Do I Make Pumpkin Purée?

*Before it was readily available in the UK, this is what I used to do in recipes that used pumpkin purée.

Simply peel, de-seed, and chop a pumpkin (or butternut squash), steam until tender then purée in a food processor until smooth. Use as required in recipes.
