It’s Fall! You know what that means? It means golden trees, crisp winds, and fall foods…Especially pumpkins! I can now officially begin baking everything pumpkin: cookies, pies, cakes, breads and so much more. The pumpkin spice will be filling my home inviting the holidays.

As I do around this time, I begin looking for new pumpkin recipes to try. I keep the old favorites passed down from my mom but I always want to add variety. This year, I was checking out what was new on the Disney Family website and I discovered these cute Cinderella Pumpkin Cookies, which if I think about it, it is kind of fitting. Cinderella did go to the ball in a pumpkin after all.

The recipe is pretty simple to make. It uses a pre-made pie crust and the rest of the ingredients are simply whisked together. Then it is baked and served. No fuss and very little mess…unless it is my kitchen. Somehow it always looks like a tornado twisted through my kitchen. However, it is totally worth it for the yummy pumpkin treats.

Use the recipe below to make your own Cinderella Pumpkin Cookies or go to family.disney.com and check the recipe out there. They also have other fun crafts and activities the kids are sure to enjoy.
