I am going to be so bold as to say that this right here, even if it isn’t the most elaborate or beautiful cookie you’ve ever seen, is hands down the cookie of the holiday season. Seriously. If there is only one cookie you make all through the holidays let it be these pumpkin spice marshmallow cookies. And if you desperately need chocolate you can have these browned butter nutella and dulce de leche sea salt chocolate chip cookies (try saying that 5 times fast) or these browned butter white chocolate snickerdoodles. But first, please make these.

These may have pumpkin spice marshmallows (which I found at Walmart) but trust me, adults will love them just as much as kids. My gosh they are delicious. I mean, soft, gooey, warm, spiced deliciousness with cream cheese frosting on top? For heaven’s sake! When I was little I was obsessed with these awesome chocolate marshmallow cookies at the mall, and I still think they are pretty bomb diggity, but good mercy these ones take the cake! Literally too, as they use a spice cake mix. I know, I could have done a from scratch cookie, but these ones are just so yummy and so much faster.
Plus spice cakes are like all over the place at this time of year so it’s so easy to just grab and go. I resist fall and winter for the first month or two and then finally I wrap my little arms around it and embrace the heck out of the gorgeous fall leaves, over sized sweaters and gorgeous boots. This time of year really is so cozy. And a mug of cocoa and these cookies make that freezing cold wind all the less important. Now I just need a good book to read while I nibble…
