Pumpkin Walnut Cookie Recipe

It is November so I am working on new holiday cookie recipes and these pumpkin walnut cookies will be a hit for your family. They are also lower in sugar then most of my recipes for I used Swerve sweetener in them.

I love to bake but I am also very aware that we should be watching how much sugar we have in our diets. Gluten free flours have a higher carb content then regular white flour so I am looking for ways to cut back a bit on the sugar in my recipes.

While I am trying to cut back the sugar in my recipes I am not cutting back on taste or quality.

No one will know that these gluten free cookies are a bit healthier version.

In fact, I am sure everyone will be asking for 2 or 3 of these cookies.
