Stuffed Pumpkin Spice Sugar Cookies

Ahh, Sugar Cookies. My favorite part of Christmas Cookies! Every year my grandmother makes teacakes. They are really cutout sugar cookies but with a family recipe. My Christmas is really made when I get to go to my grandmother's house and enjoy all of the cookies that she makes. 

My grandmother turned 80 this year and still makes at least 8 kinds of cookies during the Christmas season. She always makes family favorites and some new ones. Each grandchild has their own favorite but my grandmother's favorite is a fruitcake cookie.

This is a cheater recipe (or Sandra Lee recipe as my mother called it!)
 I used a regular bag of sugar cookie mix and doctored it up to give it some more flavor.
 This cookie was awesome!
I was making some cream cheese frosting and decided to add some more deliciousness to the cookie.
 Adding the cream cheese frosting just made them even better!

 This cookie was an adaptation from This month's Kitchen Play by McCormick Spice. This month had the theme of Kid Friendly Halloween! While Peabody made pumpkins with her cookies, I decided to do something different to mine!

Stuffed Pumpkin Spice Sugar Cookies
recipe adapted from this recipe on Culinary Concoctions by Peabody

1 package sugar cookie mix (I used Betty Crocker)
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie Spice
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Frosting, of your choice (I made this recipe for another recipe coming soon!)

Mix sugar cookie mix according to directions on package. While mixing add in pumpkin pie spice and vanilla extract. Bake according to directions on package.

Once cooled, put frosting onto one side of a cookie and place an unfrosted cookie on top. Enjoy!

What a great use of a cookie mix! If you can add pumpkin to cake mix, why not cookie mix, too? :) They look great!

There is no shame in "cheater" recipes. Especially around the holidays! And these look delicious.
