Quick and Easy Pumpkin Macaroons

When Victoria and I were kids we didn’t like pumpkin flavoured anything.  I’m not sure if this is because we actually didn’t like it or just assumed it would taste bad because pumpkins weren’t things you ate, they were things to carve and put on your front porch.  Fast forward to today and we both enjoy baking with pumpkins…and eating the results!  This fall season I decided to give some Pumpkin Macaroons a try.  If you’ve never baked with pumpkin before this recipe is a great place to start.   Check out these yummy, easy to bake Pumpkin Macaroons.

On a little side note…every fall I look forward to baking and creating a fall atmosphere in our home.  I have a list to complete before Halloween to take advantage of this festive season.  I love to burn scented candles bake and of course decorate (see my new Fall Welcome Sign).  As a family we love to go to our local pumpkin patch to pick out the perfect pumpkin and go hiking to catch glimpses of the fall colours.  I have a Fall Checklist for all the fall-ness that needs to happen before Halloween.  Check it out…

Back to the macaroons…these little snacks are easy to make and the ingredient list is not scary.  They are quick to whip up for work snacks, office parties or family get togethers…and for at home snacking ? .  The pumpkin seed on the top are optional but look oh so cute.  Considered putting some orange food colouring into the mix to make them even more pumpkin-y or placing some candy eyes on them to give the kids a giggle.  

Let’s get to the recipe now!
