These cookies are the perfect way to celebrate fall. These adorable cookies are super delicious and fun. I love serving these, and they also make for a delightful gift.
*Makes about 4 1/2 dozen
Add in the pumpkin, vanilla, almond meal, salt, and spices. Mix until smooth. At this point, you can add a a drop or so of annato seed oil or orange food coloring if desired. (I used about a very tiny bit of coloring for the cookies in the images you see here, just to brighten them slightly.)
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Remove the the baking sheet from the refrigerator and then use the back of a paring knife to make several vertical lines around each ball of dough, all coming together at the top center. Add them to the other prepared baking sheet as you go, being sure there's at least an inch between each one.
Bake in the preheated 350°F oven until bottoms are slightly golden and the cookies are solid, about 15 minutes.
Let the cookies cool completely on the baking sheets.
