Frosted Spice Cookies

frostedspicecookie1st

 Well, I can’t believe it is November. I also can not believe how quickly it is flying by. Have you started thinking about what you are going to prepare for Thanksgiving? Sadly, I started thinking about it months ago but I never know for certain until a week or two before the “big day.”

These cookies sorta came together by accident and I thought the batter tasted yummy so I finished them off with a yummy brown sugar frosting. I used a scoop to place them on the cookie sheet. It is about a 2 tsp size scoop but feel free to make these a little bigger if you like. Mine came out a little crispy on the bottom but if you make them a bit bigger and reduce the cooking time then that should yield a softer cookie.

 Depending on how generous you frost the cookie you may need another batch of icing. I had about 6 cookies that did not get frosted because I ran out of frosting. Those few cookies that didn’t get any frosting were also delicious. I think they would have been great crumbled into some ice cream.
