Happy Halloween!

I am shocked it’s the end of October! This year has flown and we are now right around the corner from the holidays! I can’t wait! I have already started baking and looking for decorations!! Baking is my thing come October all the way through January! I seriously baked for 6 hours non stop yesterday. I made a lot of Halloween treats all from scratch including; vanilla cupcakes, chocolate cupcakes, sugar cookies and my new favorite pumpkin spice cookies with cinnamon icing! The cinnamon icing recipe came from magnolia bakery in NYC. Amazing desserts there if you’ve never been. The pumpkin spice cookies I made as healthy as I could, and really the icing is the only not so healthy part but I only iced a few. I used all natural and organic ingredients and substituted organic applesauce instead of the oil. Here’s the recipe if you want to try it now that it’s the pumpkin season!

1 1/2 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon (I used a pinch more)
1/4 Teaspoon Nutmeg (Also used a pinch more)
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Cup Sugar
1 Can Pumpkin
2 Tablespoons Canola Oil (I used Applesauce)
1 Egg
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla

Drop spoonfuls on sprayed cookie sheet. Bake on 350 for about 15-18 minutes. (Makes 18-24 cookies)

Magnolia Bakery Cinnamon Frosting:
1 Stick of Butter
4 Cups Powdered Sugar
1/4 Cup Milk
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
2 Teaspoons Cinnamon

Here are some of my Halloween cupcakes, regular vanilla with vanilla butter cream and sprinkles and then my graveyard chocolate cupcakes with chocolate butter cream frosting and milano cookies!!

I hope everyone has a fun and safe Halloween!!! 😉
