What do pumpkin pie, cinnamon spice, and maple flavor all have in a common? They are all delicious Fall flavours.  These flavours are so cozy and will help get you through the colder months.   So why not combine all of them to make a delicious cookie sandwich to serve during Thanksgiving dinner, or to just enjoy when you’re having a craving for something sweet?!

These cookies sandwich a maple pumpkin cashew filling.  They make for the perfect fall dessert.  The ingredients used to make the filling are nutritious and wont leave you feeling bloated and on a sugar high.  Plus, the filling is easy to make!
