Pumpkin Cookies with Sugar Free Royal Icing. Healthy, delicious and easy to make, that whole family will love.

Tomorrow is Halloween and I made some fun donuts for my grandsons, but they don’t look presentable enough, lol. They are delicious, but I need more practice with colorful icing. I am sure the boys will love them anyway, and for my blog I made these simple yet flavorful Pumpkin Cookies.

They are truly delightful even for Christmas and you can always adjust the spices to your preference. For example adding more ginger if you like. I will probably experiment with this recipe myself and see what else I can come up with, because I really love the texture.

Also, I am absolutely thrilled that I finally figured out how to make sugar free Royal Icing. Although, you can buy vegan one on AMAZON. I didn’t think that it would be so simple, because I was afraid that if I don’t use real sugar, the icing will not harden. But when I did my first test, it did harden and was dancing happy dance in my kitchen.

You can see on these cookies how pretty it looks and the taste is lovely as well. Now I just have to learn how to do more than just swirls. I am planning to make Christmas snowflake cookies with icing, so wish me luck. However, I made some delicious cookies last year, but without icing and you can find them on my DESSERT page.

Anyway, I would love to hear about your experience with Royal Icing and cookie decorating. Maybe you can give me some tips. Thank you so much for visiting and I wish you HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
