While we’re used to seeing lots of Halloween decorations, candy, food, and fun, we’re being asked to celebrate socially distanced, avoid trick-or-treating, and keep the gatherings to a minimum.

It’s up to each person now to create their own memories for the holiday. Do you enjoy eating fun treats? Baking cookies together? Just making sure there’s a smell of cinnamon or clove in the air?

Well, simmer a pot of water with orange peel and whole cloves, pull out the pumpkin puree, and bake up a storm!

Our Pumpkin Spice Cookies are a big hit at this time of year, but it doesn’t have to stop there. Some good friends of our love to roll the Pumpkin Spice Cookies in cinnamon sugar before baking (a Pumpkin-Snickerdoodle … YUM!), and orange, green, dark purple, and black frosting is a fun way to add lots of seasonal color! Sprinkle on some candy eyeballs … you’ve got your own little party going on!

You can find the Pumpkin Spice Cookies and Snickerdoodle Cookies recipes, or all our other spiced recipes (like Banana Bread and Carrot Cake) on our Recipes page. And don’t forget to get our Master Mix that makes all these recipes and more, here!
