This is the best pumpkin pie cookie recipe ever!
I tried baking the pumpkin pie filling into my cookie but because the cookie base is so soft, the filling ended up sinking into the cookie.
It still tasted incredible but I didn’t want a cookie without enough filling so I ended up going a different route.
To be honest, I’m glad I did because the texture contrasts were absolutely delicious! A soft cookie, with a mousse-like filling, truly can’t go wrong with this cookie, especially around this time of year.
