This post is done by Cassie, who was so so nice to do a little guest post, and provided this yummy Pumpkin Spiced and Iced Cookies recipe for me while I was sick. 

So, I’m not a great cook. But I do love to bake, especially when it’s a good recipe. Since I love dessert, I’m always on the lookout for good sweets. And when there’s pumpkin involved, it’s even better. These seem to be perfect every time I make them- always soft and yummy, even if they spend just a little too much time in the oven.

Can You Freeze Butter Cream Frosting?

Butter cream frosting will freeze very well.

Store the frosting in an airtight container or even in a freezer bag.

Freeze for up to 3 months.

Can You Freeze Pumpkin Puree?

You can freeze pumpkin puree in freezer containers or in heavy duty freezer bags.

Pumpkin puree will keep for several months in the freezer.

Do Walnuts Provide Protein?

Walnuts are not only a source for protein, the also contain monounsaturated fats, and have high amounts of omega-3 fatty acid.

These fatty acids promote heart health.
