Keto Pumpkin Cookies

You know what I miss the most while being in Keto? SUGAR! Like a brownie or cake or even gummy bears. I am always craving sugar and its so hard to get over the loss of sugar. Im always on a lookout for a great dessert that will give me that sugar feeling. So while scrolling through Pinterest, I came across a pumpkin cookie that sounded good. I love anything pumpkin! So when I find something with pumpkin and Keto, I've got to try it. 

I found the original recipe from Fit Mom Journey on Pinterest. I changed it up just a bit. I also didn't make the frosting but next time I would. I feel that they would have been better with the frosting. But It didn't stop me from eating a whole bunch of cookies! I even shared some at work, and they were pretty pleased with them! Keto for the WIN! 

Let me show you how I made these Pumpkin Cookies and what I thought about them. 

  • 8 oz Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup Pumpkin Puree
  • 1/2 cup Butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup Swerve Sweetener
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 tsp. Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 2/3 cup Coconut Flour
  • 2 tsp. Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt

  • Instructions

    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

    2. Beat cream cheese, butter, pumpkin puree, and powdered sweetener. 

    3.Add in the eggs and vanilla and beat until fluffy.

    4. Add in the coconut flour, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, and salt, stirring until just combined.
    5. Drop by cookie scoop onto the prepared baking sheets.
    6. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes until the edges just barely start to brown. 

    7. Cool cookies on baking sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to countertop to cool. 1 sheet of cookies came out a little too done, but the other was just perfect. I think next time I will bake 1 sheet at a time.

    DIY Cook Book Stand- My new fall favorite home decor!

    When I saw the Pumpkin Patch transfer, I fell in love! I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. I wanted to put in on everything - pillows, shirts, wall art- and everything else! So when I found this Vintage looking tablet stand - I knew it was going to be perfect! Best part is that when I saw it, i didn't know it was a tablet stand, I just thought was a cook book stand. I can use it for both! 

    Well I want too show you how to make it! It was so easy and only took 10 minutes to make - including clean up! 

    Supplies Needed:
    Galvanized Metal Tablet Stand- From Hobby Lobby 
    Step 1
    Gather all your supplies. You are going to want to have them all in arms length. Stir your paste - you don't want to have to stop after your 1st color to stir the next. 

    Step 2
    Fuzz fuzz FUZZ your transfer! You want to make sure its not too sticky and have a hard time removing it from the stand. 

    Step 3
    Apply your transfer on the stand how you would like it. I made sure to have it go more to the top since I didn't want to not be able to see the bottom part of the transfer. I didn't want to lose out on the cute arrow! 
    Step 4
    Using the Shimmer Shadow Paste, Paste the top words and bottom arrow 1st. Put any extra pasta back into the jar.  Use the Paste and Pull Method. Lift up just long enough to dry and carefully lay them back down. 

    Step 5
    Using the Orange Peel Paste, Paste the entire pumpkin area. Put any extra pasta back into the jar. 

    Step 6
    Lift the entire transfer and place into water bath for a short time or clean immediately. I like to clean all my transfers with a Board Eraser. It works like a charm and make the clean up process to easy! Once clean, lay flat with sticky side up. Once dry, Place backer paper onto the transfer.

    You are all done and ready to show off your new Kitchen Stand! Use it for a Cook Book or a Tablet, either way, it will make your kitchen feel like Fall!
