Welcome to fall, y’all! Yesterday was the first day we had a slight drop in the temperature here in Birmingham, AL and it felt so nice. Before we know it, it’ll be time for fall festivals, Halloween parties, Trunk or Treat get togethers, and even more football parties. In honor of the festive feel of fall and to celebrate this refreshing change of seasons, I’ve teamed up with several other bloggers to bring you TONS of fall and Halloween inspiration as well as a CASH GIVEAWAY to help you pay for your fall and Halloween decor and party prep.
Speaking of party prep, I made it my goal to find you one of the easiest and most simple party treats to make for your neighborhood party or next shindig that will also satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth. Although, I typically post healthy recipes I’ve decided to start sharing YOLO (You Only Live Once!) recipes every now and then that are worth the splurge. I had one of these Pumpkin Peanut Butter Cookie Sandwiches yesterday with an Icebox iced coffee, and let me assure you, it is WORTH the splurge.
If you’re wondering how I’ve made this pumpkin peanut butter cookies recipe so easy, let me tell you…store bought cookies. That’s right…no shame in my game. I wanted to make a recipe that was so good and simple, you could do it even if you only had 30 minutes. I got these from the bakery section of my store and if you really wanted to make it easy, you could even grab some pre-made icing. Shhhh, it’ll be our little secret. No judgey mom looks coming from me, sister!
Check out the pumpkin peanut butter cookie sandwiches recipe below, and then enter to win our giveaway! After you do that, head on over to each of my friends’ blogs so you can get all kinds of fall and Halloween inspo.
Since I know a lot of you are new here coming over to visit from some of the other girls I’ve partnered with for this blog hop, I thought I’d share a little bit about me. I turned 30 this year, had a baby, and started a new part-time job. I run Home Grown Bloggers, which this photo (from Joy Leigh Photograph) is from that we hosted in my hometown of Birmingham, AL this past weekend. Otherwise, you can find me blogging, doing social media consulting, teaching Pure Barre, or hanging out with my friends and family. I have been married for 8 years to my college sweetheart and we have a little boy who just turned 1! I am a Christ follower and love to encourage other women through fitness, life or being a mom. I’m so grateful to have you join me here today!
- Bakery Cookies (feel free to make your own)
- ½ cup Butter, Melted

- Beat for at least 3 minutes for it to get fluffy.
- Spoon a few tablespoons full of frosting on top of one cookie.
