Before moving to the US, I don't remember ever eating pumpkin. Now it's kind of hard to avoid! I've used it in several recipes already, like low carb pumpkin mousse and the sausage and pumpkin bites – oh and I've also roasted the seeds! But this is the first time I have baked with pumpkin. The result is a super soft cookie that is very low in carbs. It's really hard to eat just one!
Oh – and if you love these, you'll adore my Low Carb Pumpkin Muffins – with cream cheese frosting!
How to Make Low Carb Pumpkin Cookies
Bake in a preheated oven for 10 minutes, or until they start to darken at the edges. Remove from the oven, but leave on the baking sheet for another 10 minutes. The cookies will still be super soft at this point. After they have cooled slightly, transfer the cookies to a cooling rack.
